Related to this, I have 2 PCs connected to a cable modem through a
Netgear DS104 4-port router. I was also told that if I set the NAT on
that router it would be *all* I needed to be secure because
everything would be stopped at that point. (related, I have NO idea
how to do this, if anyone has a how-to or can point me to a resource
that would be great)

First of all, is this true? I would still run my Norton anyway, but
would I still need a software firewall?

Also is MSofts firewall compareable/just as good as ZoneAlarm? Is
there an advantage of going one way or the other?
