Although a NAT router is not really a firewall, it affords adequate
firewall-like protection for most home users. You wouldn't need the SP2
"Windows Firewall" behind a NAT router.
Many third party firewall applications, like Zone Alarm, and Kerio Personal
Firewall (which I use; version 2.1.5) provide application level control on
outbound connections; which may be useful.
