Agree,  the SuSe firewall is nice, but it is really for simple
workstation/desktop setups.  If you want to do more advanced setups you
need to leave the tool behind.  I recommend fwbuilder 
- http://freshmeat.net/projects/fwbuilder/
The UI is intuitive and you can build VERY sophisticated rule stacks.  

Even Windows admins manage to figure it out.
