If you would like to use a current version of RedHat there are several 
clones. One that I use is TAOLinux. It is currently RHEL4. The goal of this 
project was to create as close to a RedHat release as possible. If you set 
up the GUI there is a very straight forward security tool to do the 
firewall. Also during install there is a section to setup the rules  as 
well. I run both version 1 and 4 on the web with no trouble.

You will want to keep SSH but may opt to not do SSL. DO NOT use telnet to 
administer the machine unless it is a secured version. Most of them are not. 
I only use SSH and a SSH tunnel for a VNC session.
