Hi Beanny,

im planning on making a firewall for my home system.. I am running
windowsXP / SuSE 8.1 dual boot  what I want to do is set up another
computer to act as a firewall for my main system. what I want this to do is
to be able to control what enters and leaves my system  with a way to set
up permissions. preferably I would like to have a firewall running on
either a Linux or Unix os ... no m$ =) tia

with the iptables you already got a very powerful stateful inspection 
engine/firewall for free. Have a look to the Linux firewll and iptables 
howto. To ease the basic iptables setup i´d recommend either fwbuilder or the 
commercial fbuilder.
Just google for the mentioned packets.
