And I say only do that if you want to be lax, because it could still be possible for them to gain access to the linux box, and from there try to hack into your machine. As long as you don't run any unnecessary servers on it though (such as sendmail, ftp, apache, etc.) it'd probably be ok.

but it's not a really firewall since it just closes the port from internet.

LinkSys has one for less than $100. (I have one)
Also NetGear, 3Com, and SMC all have models. Each includes a DHCP server to provide addresses to your local network and some even include a print server. For less than a hundred bucks you get NAT addresses, and all your local systems can use the Internet on your broadband gateway, whether it's DSL, Cable Modem or other.
