Yoshimura,

If you are running KDE or GNOME Firestarter is a good firewall to use. You can download it from Sourceforge at www.sourceforge.com

You shouldn't have any issues with KDE however if it does truly require GNOME, you only need to install the GNOME libraries. Mandrake 10 should check the dependencies for you.

You'll need to run the command firestarter if I am not mistaken and it should automatically add itself to the required run levels so that it starts when you boot.

Another alternative is Guarddog:

http://www.simonzone.com/software/guarddog/

A tip - to get the firewall up automatically on boot-up copy this code below:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

[ -x /etc/rc.firewall ] && /etc/rc.firewall
into a text file and call it

ip-up.local

then make a copy of it and call it

ip-down.local

Then make both files executable with chmod 755

Finally put them both into the /etc/ppp directory.
