I use Zone Alarm (http://www.zonelabs.com/) as it's good, easy to use and best of all it's free for the basic version. ;)

Norton firewall is too easily hackable

I use none or Sygate....Ive had nothing but connection probs with ZA, and tiny just didnt live up to its name.
'Most powerful (secure) Firewall'
Yeah, right. Where are the options to configure the damm thing?

A hardware firewall is usually best. Youll find the best packages are for Linux

It doesn't close the ports but put's them into stealth mode so they can't be seen and blocks any access bein' directed to those ports unless ya otherwise say so. ;)
