firewall on but LAN connection doesn't say so

My software firewall (PCCillin) is on, but it says only "connected" - it used to say "connected, firewalled" - it says that if i turn windows firewall on - but i don't want that on because of conflict with software fire wall. Is my LAN still fire walled safely?

Only a guess but I would doubt it. I was always lead to believe (on this forum) that 3rd party firewalls switched off the standard XP firewall when they started. Personally I'd run the XP Firewall just to be safe.

What do PCCilln say on their website?
