Thanks to Carla and Hamster for the links.  The two articles on Building 
Firewalls with iptables, Part 1 and 2 were very helpful.   The address 
for Building Firewalls with iptables Part 2 should read 
http://networking.earthweb.com/netsecur/article.php/2219571, but that 
article on Building a Linux Dial-up Server was great too!
I've  a basic script up and running and I'm slowing closing all the 
ports and adding entries one by one.

Thanks for all the help.
