I'd readily recommend the GPL version of http://smoothwall.org/ for the 
firewall machine.
I'm using at home, with Win/Linux/Mac and FreeServe ADSL (it's the only 
firewall I found that could handle the USB frog modem)

The great thing is that it also has a DMZ so that you can host your 
external facing machines (SMTP/POP/HTTP) without another firewall machine.

Peice of pish, just get the files from 
<http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/unix.html> extract em and run from a 
terminal window... There's even a graphical viewer for xwindows.
