Question Firewalls and linux

After doing a little reading I found that both guarddog and firestarter are nothing more than GUI's for the built in kernel firewall Iptables. More information can be found here: http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/Firewall.

*NOTE*
You can have both on your system but do not run at the same time!

Cheers
