I helped a guy here in Houston at the HAL - PC group put rc.firewall on his webserver box (he was running an older version of Mandrake and wanted to make sure he was secure), we opened the standard web port for his webserver, ftp, SSH, and Samba share...
We even ran rkhunter to ensure he didnt have a linux trojan on there...all clean!!
rc.firewall is a very very powerful and smart script and with tweaking can be even more powerful..just be careful what you open, but on say a laptop or single desktop even the unmodified "stateful firewall" will protect you quite well!
Think of it as sygate personal firewall on steriods, but for (linux)!
