I've deployed both Astaro and Mandrake Single Network Firewall (now defunct, replaced by Multi Network Firewall). They're both stable, robust systems with nice web management interfaces. I would not recommend either of these to someone with no Linux background, however, as troubleshooting will almost certainly require someone to access a bash prompt, interact with services, and edit files with `vi`.
Also, for those who haven't seen this already, there's an interesting article from SysAdmin about using a halted Linux kernel as a secure packet filtering firewall. (http://www.samag.com/documents/s=1824/sam0201d/0201d.htm)
