[TriLUG] Windows Software Firewall Recommendations

I know this is a Linux group primarily, but I do see some mention of
Windows occasionally so I thought I would get some opinions on a matter
I'm dealing with at work.
We have a few Win2k machines out on the Internet - not behind a firewall
at all. I could move them behind a more secure firewall in the future
but that would take allot of head butting with the developer. Hopefully
in the future I can get the developer to move from windows tomcat to a
Linux lava servlet - but that would be impossible right now.
The only current option is to use some software firewalls on each box.
So, I would like to, by the end of the week, have several of our Win2k
boxes protected by a software firewall and I'm asking for
recommendations. I know there are allot out there and most of them are
very resource intensive. Sygate and our tomcat just didn't get along
for whatever reason in one trial. I think the developer told me
something about high memory usage.
So what do you guys recommend for software firewalls on windows boxes in
an enterprise type of environment?
