how about a linux based firewall:

endian or ipcop both have web interfaces to configure it with (ssh access
too) and can be backed up and restored fairly quickly.

What environment are you protecting? What kind of security do you 
need? ISA may be ideal or overkill.

We have over 100 Windows-servers to protect. In our environment there is
alot of different services with different needs.

We need a FW-solution that can filter any traffic on the 4th-layer and is
easy to administer.
