I don't have a firewall script handy, but it's not really the same as
using most internet-ish based firewalls because they largely
will be doing masquerading, while you most likely will want to route
properly across the subnets (though you can masquerade one private
network to another if you want to).

I can't think of any pre-packaged solutions that will suit your needs,
though you may want to have a play with some firewall generation tools
(there's a few decent web-based ones around from memory).

Good luck,
