Default Do you use a firewall?

Hi, just wondering what the most common firewall an average home user would best use?

I'm running Ubuntu 6.10 with only a hub and one other pc off of it.

Thanks in advance for replies.

Edit: considering Guarddog and Firestarter atm.

I've dabbled with FireStarter and it seems to work pretty good. I just never spent the time to configure it fully and test it's limits.

I'm using arno-iptables-firewall which is a set of iptables rules. Pretty easy to configure.
