Do Firewalls conflict?

My computer runs XP and the Firewall is (I imagine) operating. I have recently purchased Norton Internet security 2007. I understand that this too has a Firewall operating. Question; should I disable one or other of these Firewalls and if so which one please.

Yes they conflict.

Hi, usually when starting a Firewall other than the built-in one in XP, the XP one is shut down automatically. I run two Firewalls, Kerio Personal Firewall and a built-in hardware firewall in my router.

Norton should automatically disable the XP firewall for you.
