Having never set one up before and only having a little knowledge of linux

Search on freshmeat.net for firewall building tools.
Or if you want to try out OpenBSD, there is a pf HOWTO on deadly.org
If you want to get really funky, look on samag for dead firewall. Thats
a shutdown Linux box running as a firewall.
IIRC, this is using ipchains in runlevel 0. Interesting in concept, but
lacks stateful inspection. Unless the same can be done via iptables, I
recommend you stick with the earlier suggestion of OpenBSD/PF.
