I'd strongly recommend shorewall.  It does all the IPtables manipulation 
for you.  It's easy to setup and has good documentation, including some 
good exemplar configurations.  Moreover, its powerful enough to cope 
with complex situations.

Alternatively, for a desktop system you could consider firestarter.
