for the issue of outbound TCP connections you can set ipchains filters
based on the Syn flag to prevent inbound connections.

for FTP I don't know off the top of my head how to do it when not
masquerading, when NAT is turned on load the FTP masq helper module and it
will allow you to do ftp out with no problems.

the real point that you need the stateful filtering is on UDP ports. for
that again I don't know any way when not doing NAT, but when NAT is
enabled it does do basic stateful filtering (but watch out for timeouts)
