Mac OS X Informit.com's very own Mac Reference Guide, Owen Linzmayer, again risks the slings and arrows of Apple's most ardent admirers with another look at how Tiger rubs him wrong. Take a look at "Ten More Things I Hate About Mac OS X" to see if you recognize any of your own pet peeves. Elsewhere on the same site, this chapter covers the initial installation and setup of Mac OS X Tiger, either as a fresh installation, or as an upgrade from a previous version. Detailed instructions are given to help you set your Mac up just how you want it.

FYI.. MacOS uses the super excellent ipfw firewall just like other BSD's, and Solaris and HPUX Unixen. All of your firewall related questions are easy to take care of. If you want advanced functionality its in there, MacOS is a nix after all.

Its pretty easy to configure the rules by hand, much easier to understand the rules than Linux'es I think.

There is a ton of info on the net about configuring ipfw, but here is a good one that might get you started:
