If you do not set a root password and use sudo, then the tdesudo-trinity 
package is appropriate to ensure that all tdesu calls are actually tdesudo 
=> instead of su and root passwords will use sudo and the user's password.

Firestarter is a GTK+ application - it somewhat diminishes the motivation 
for inclusion in the TDE tree. Did you try KMyFirewall? I've never used 
it, but it's an application that's already incorporated into TDE.
