Trying to set up a Linux-based firewall for four locations

I am a system/network admin for a large company. I want to have a Linux-based firewall system in each of our four locations. Each office will have a firewall. My question is where would I go to get the information on which distribution to use and how to set up the box?

You might want to check the following sites for information on how to configure a Linux firewall:

http://netsecurity.about.com/cs/linuxfirewalls/
http://www.firewall-net.com/en/linux/index.php

Good luck!
