Well, this won't help you in Red Hat, sorry, but Mandrake has a fairly
good gui tool to setup a "basic" shorewall configuration. It will
let you choose to open up several well know services (web, dns, ssh,
ftp, mail, pop/imap, samba, ping) and also let's you enter ports/transports
(like 139/tcp) manually. It's in DrakConf ("Configure your computer"
in the Mandrake menu) under "Security" -> "Firewall".
