Theres no firewal on the list. Can anyone suggest me a good free firewall?
One by one, we break the sheep from their Iron Bar Prisons and expand their imaginations, make them think for themselves. In turn, they break more from their prisons. Eventually, critical mass is reached. Our key word: Resolve. Evangelize with compassion and determination. And realize that there will be few in the beginning. We are hand picking our successors. They are the future of Discordianism. Let us guide our future with intelligence.

Take a look at that list.  I can't find a Free (Open Source) firewall that stands out, though.

Thanks! This should certainly work better than the zone alarm crap program I'm running.

BMW, I use the Comodo Firewall, which is free and not bad.  I think Zone Labs are widely considered to be the best firewall but I haven't got around to installing that yet.

if you have a spare old pc lying around smoothwall turns it into a shit hot H/Ware firewall. I used to be bulletproof behind mine.

That article that S,TM put up suggests that that is no longer the case, at least for the freeware. And I've heard from multiple people that Zone Alarm is crap. Im running Kerio now, seems to be working quite well.

And that Keynote program sounds interesting...wonder if it would be good for student notes as well.

Hmm.  I used Kiero, but didn't like it.  I found Comodo much better than that.

My mate did it for me but it looked fairly straightforward. Easy as hell to administer through http

Word of advice make sure your NICs are on the approved list - winmodems didn't used to work with linux - prolly still the same nowadays.
