Do you want to use the security tool in FC4? In KDE it is under the start menu > system settings > security level. There you can open the command ports or add your own in the bottom box.

If you really want to get into it manually then check out

In there, there are several links to some pre written scripts or one of the links this one allows you to create a firewall script online by answering the questions.

You can also try firestarter which is a GUI for iptables, if I'm not wrong. It makes things much easier. Just type as root:
yum install firestarter
Then go to 'System tools > Firestarter' to configure it.
