If you don't know what iptables are, or you don't think you'll manage to write an iptables script then look at firestarter, this is good beginners firewall if the real security of your box is not a big concern to you, start from here
If you feel you can overcome iptables here is a good tutorial http://iptables-tutorial.haringstad....-tutorial.html
