Will Symantec 100 do the job...?

I'm looking for a firewall to connect between our departmental LAN and the
campus-wide network, in order to block ports that we aren't using, and,
potentially, block all packets from certain IP numbers that have been
identified as cracker sites.
I don't need DHCP or NAT; I want traffic to go directly through my firewall
to the various machines, which are DHCP-served from a campus DHCP server.
Will the Symantec Firewall/VPN Appliance, Model 100, do this job? It is
such a multifunction device that I'm having a little trouble figuring out
from the documentation how to get it to do as *little* as I want. I haven't
bought one yet.
