Usually, it is considered a bad idea to run multiple personal firewalls on 
one system. Under some circumstances, you may actually be less secure.

I did a quick test of the XP firewall when we put together a client for 
it. It works ok. Overall, it is very basic (no outbound checks, not very 
configurable).
