Can we get a definitive sticker on the firewall setting?

    Hi, everyone, longtime reader
    I just installed the OSX and after reading the long thread on the firewall settings and not being an expert like so many of you here, I was a little confused by the thread and the choices that OSX gives on the settings.

    Right now, I have it set on just bluetooth sharing and block all incoming connections which I hope is adequate. Maybe a sticky on the why and how, one might use each of the 3 settings. I admit it was easier with just a on/off switch, but I like the new OSX enough not to go back.

    Anyway, I thought a sticky, which I always try to read, would help clear up the confusion for myself and others.

    If only more newbies were like that....

    I agree, though, I am going to be installing leopard in the next day or so, and would like the facts in one place.
