- Will I Need a Software Firewall?

This week I will be getting 768/128 dsl and will be using a Zoom X5
modem/router with NAT and NAPT capability.
My main box is running Win XP and a Win ME box is on a LAN. I will
eventually add a wireless access port.
Apparently I can have both machines on the internet simultanously in the
NAPT mode. This supposedly gives "good" firewall protection.
Would a software firewall give me any increased security or is it redundant?
