Got to freshmeat and download arno-iptables. All you do is edit a config script, replace your /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall and run the script that comes with it. I have been running it for a while with a kind of paranoid setting and have had no problems. Though, I am on dial up and only connected about 4 hours a day on the average.
