Hi Haakon,

very cool but, the Manuel intentions is to build a Firewall, only 
firewall, an instrument
to protect the network from outside world. You must educate your users 
and guest!
My modest suggestions are to install one every client:
1) Antivirus
2) Anti-worm
3) User NT/2000 autentication (should exclude local install)
4) A brief course on a social engeneering.

That's it.
