Understand it is pretty good setup tool.  It is not actually a firewall, but uses linux's iptables to configure a firewall on your machine.  Requires kernel 2.4.4 and iptables 1.2.1a or better.

If you're loking for a standalone firewall, something not running on your main machine, I can recommend SmoothWall.  It is also linux based, 2.2.19 kernel and ipchains.  Comes with a web frontend, snort ids, squid web proxy, etc.  Current stable version is 0.9.8 with 0.9.9 undergoing beta testing.  Stable release is slated for Aug 27th.  http://www.smoothwall.org/gpl
