Get Firewalls & INternet Security by Cheswick & Bellovin. Its the
best book (not to mention one of the shortest).
Builing Internet Firewalls by Chapman & Zwicky is also good if you
decide to build or reconfigure, and Practical UNIX security, 2nd ed by
Spafford & Garfinkel is a good reference book on securing things that
may not be firewalls.
