Absolutely, the Linux kernel firewall is as good a stateful packet filter as any. I don't think Fedora is the best choice for an Internet firewall, though, simply because of its short life cycle. The last thing you want is stale software at your perimeter. Have a look at the free RHEL variants, or even OpenBSD, which has a way cool kernel firewall (pf). Cheers Steffen.
