    I don't know how your connected to the internet but just using a low end router with built in stateless packet filter would do find and you can turn firewall off or on for all amachines since it by you single conneciton from any of the machines.

    Here is a link that point to the RPM Howto, and anotherone here

    # rpm -Uvh firewall-jay-x.y.z.rpm
    rpm = Well the main package manager on most distro's
    -Uvh = Options you pass to the rpm program; U = Upgrade package, v = Verbose, h = hash
    firewall-jay-x.y.z.rpm = filename (x could be target processor type like i386 or i686, z could be program version.)
    Use rpm -q firewall-jay to see if it is installed allready
