Description of problem:

success and failure is unspecific wrt what step is being done.
patch is/will-be attached.

also - I added this to my /etc/sysconfig/iptables,
it helped me identify errors in my rule tweaks, it
appears number things the same way theyre reported
by iptables.  Something like it might be useful
as a status/config command.

> 		grep -v "^[[:space:]]*#" $IPTABLES_CONFIG | grep -v '^[[:space:]]*$' | cat -n

Please have a look at the fedora core iptables package. The init
script is a complete rewrite with more messages and options.
