Recommended SOFTWARE firewalls for Windows 2003 server?

I've been using ISA 2004 lately, and it works great except for in a few areas.  This is only a firewall for this ONE machine.  I basically would like to have the functionality like ISA 2004, but not be ISA 2004.

What firewalls do you guys use?

Thanks,
Josh

You will be hard pressed to get ISA 2004 functionality in anything but ISA 2004, as it is a true fully featured firewall and more.  I know some who use the Windows 2003 built in Firewall, but more that do the Hardware Route.  At my remote sites I use Watchguard Firebox X Edge units.  An X-5 will run about $350.  On my XP machines I run Norton Internet Security and at some client sites we run Zone Alarm, however I don't know if those two will run on a 2003 Server Platform.
