I found these Firewall links on  http://www.linuxquestions.org/ I think
they will help you with your firewall setup.

Netfilter+Iptables HOWTO:
LQ search: iptables+howto, 
Netfilter.org Packetfiltering HOWTO, 
Linuxsecurity.com Iptables tutorial, 
Andreasson's Iptables tutorial, 
Iptables Connection tracking.

FAQ: Firewall Forensics (What am I seeing?), 
Linux Firewall and Security Site, 
Auditing Your Firewall Setup (old, still usefull).

I tried Shorewall but noticed people reporting lots of problems. I have
now setup my old pentium computer as a firewall/server and run Mandrake
SNF. SNF was very easy to set up.
