Or skip all the front ends and go pick up a book on IPTables.

Webmin, Shorewall, Firestarter, and UFW all modify IPTables which is run at the kernel level.

Knowing IPTables will help you independently of any *nix distribution that you decide to use as well. ; )

Best of luck to you on your endeavors!
