Tx Rayburn,

It makes for interesting reading, although somewhat over my head. What I want to do is to create a simply firewall for my home pc, more for experimenting that any other reason. :)

You will probably find that to use a specialist distro like the above is a lot more suitable for the project you have in mind rather than trying to build one yourself using your existing one.
