Description of problem:
The documentation does not warn users about the fact that system-config-firewall will erase all custom rules that are defined in the system (as described in next chapters of the doc)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Security_Guide/sect-Security_Guide-Firewalls-Basic_Firewall_Configuration.html

How reproducible:
Always

Proposed fix:
add warning to the page informing that running system-config-firewall may remove any custom rules defined by direct iptables commands.
