Firewall & Linksys WRT54G Router

I already have the free version of Zone Alarm installed on my WinXP SP2 PC.
I've just bought a Linksys WRT54G Router which I notice has a firewall within it.
Will the two firewalls conflict with each other?
Should I uninstall the Zone Alarm firewall before connecting the router?

No shouldn't the one in the router is hardware and zone alarn software, I have the same router and McAfee firewall with no problem.

you will need both because the router will only stop unautherised incoming but zonealarm will stop any programs accessing the net without your knowledge

Strawballs,
Thanks for the quick replies.
I thought it was best to get a second opinion just to make sure.
