    You do not need to start firestarter on boot. Firestarter is not an actual firewall, only a configuration tool. And gksu is like sudo, but it works better on graphical programs.

    You would also have to edit sudoers:

    IMHO I'd remove Firestarter altogether and install GUFW which is available in Synaptic from Intrepid forward. If you're using Hardy you can get it here:

    http://gufw.tuxfamily.org/index.html

    Then go to System > Administration > Firewall Configuration and you'll see this:

    Just tick "Firewall Enabled" and don't worry! Don't change anything else!

    Yes but once you've used it to set up what you want there's no need to run it at startup. It's done it's job which is to modify THE firewall which is iptables which runs in the background all the time.
