how many firewalls CAN one run with?

if you have the windows firewall and a router firewall will they/can they conflict?

Software firewalls - You should only run one at a time. Usually, when you install a 3rd party firewall (such as Comodod Free Firewall, Zone Alarm etc) the Windows XP Firewall will automatically be disabled.

There is usually no problem at all running a software firewall and the router firewall at the same time.

There was a thread on here last year with Microsoft,And on it,It said it was perfectly safe to run another Firewall alongside Windows Firewall.Now that was from microsoft,So you either believe them or not,Myself I don't take any chances,So just run the one, kerio.
