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