I would suggest shorewall with a very simple default configuration.
IMHO, shorewall seems to be easy to use and configure, and can be used
in very simple single computer setups to very complicated networks.
The difficulty with supporting firewalls is that people will expect
"if I install package X, then it should automatically adjust the
firewall to allow it to work". I really do *not* want to go down this
The firewall is up to the administrator to decide on, not the package
