do i need a firewall for linux and if so, what is the best free one going?
It's a good idea... Firestarter is probably your best bet.
What distro are you on?
what exactly do you mean. if you are referring to a firewall like windows xp/vista has then no you dont need one. but if you are talking about setting up linux as a gateway for your home network then yes you will want one.
well I connect to the internet through a modem at home and also on a LAN at work
with linux, you dont need a firewall like windows xp/vista. i hope you are behind some sort of firewall however (be it your router or another computer you connect to the internet through.)
