    Firestarter is a good firewall, it's basically an iptables frontend so you don't have to worry about incompatibility or anything like that, and the gui frontend to firestarter makes things even easier for people who are yet to learn the power of iptables.
    Check out this site for testing your security, it's very thorough.

    most distros? I thought IPtables was a part of GNU/Linux (implying it comes with all distros). I could be mistaken though.
