At http://www.yc.debian.org/doc/ddp  ( yc = your country )
is the Debian Documentation Project.

Check the administrators' manuals
There is a "securing Debian Howto"

>1. What is the minimal number of packages I need?
A kernel is enough for a firewall

>2. How should I setup dhcp ( external to ISP )
By dhcp cleint.
The caveat is assigning the right NIC.

IMHO, Not. Configure internal NIC with static adres.

>Any pointers would be appreciated.
Beside the Debian Documentation project, also "How To Ask Questions The
Smart Way" at http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

>Thanks in advance
Your are welcome
