[oclug] DSL Question

I'm getting DSL service soon. I have a friend who is getting the same
service from the same provider. I run Linux. He runs XP. We will both be
using a SpeedTouch ADSL2+ Gateway. He believes having his system behind
this nice little piece of hardware means that his worries about being
attacked/hacked etc. will be over. Does this make any kind of sense?
How much should I be worried? I must admit I've become rather complacent
about security on dial-up with Linux. I do run a firewall but haven't
bothered with anti-virus for years.
Neither of us will have a static IP.
Any and all comments welcomed.
