If you want to allow all traffic from eth1 card to be accepted then you don't want a firewall at all, except when you're using the telephone line/modem. If this is the case then set up your firewall in firestarter to be very restrictive (only applying to the modem dial-up connection) and on the second page of the wizard, choose "ppp0" (or similar) and tick 'Start the firewall on dial-out'. Go through the rest of the wizard relating to ppp0 (blocking just about everything).
