What needs to be unblocked to be able to mine and run a bitcoin wallet?

From what I've read I just need to open port 8333 and 8332 for inbound connections, is this right?

Those ports are for bitcoind or bitcoin-qt (the graphical wallet)  The one you would open is 8333. 8332 is for your miners to connect to locally.  But this usually only applies if you are solo-mining, which I doubt you are.  If all you want to do is set up a miner and point it at a mining pool you usually don't have to open any ports, unless your firewall is unusually restrictive.

Cheers mate

I'm stuck behind a firewall, so I'm going to get the necessary ports opened, and I only want to open whats essential.

But this usually only applies if you are solo-mining, which I doubt you are. 
I've only got ~1.1GH, so your right.
