Description Wang Anli 2004-04-09 05:29:02 EDT
Description of problem:

I found this issue on RHEL4_Alpha2 release.

When I install RHEL4_Alpha2 on top of all IA32 platforms,I set the 
firewall as "disable". However, after the system is installed and 
booted up, I found that the firewall is still active. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

1) Install RHEL4_Alpha2_IA32 on a ia32 platform.
2) During installation, 
   A firewall can help prevent unauthorized access to your computer 
from the   
outside world. Would you like to enable a firewall?

   []Enable firewall                  [*]No firewall
    OK               Customize             Back

  Select "No firewall" and "OK". 
3) After the installtion finished and system booted up, run "setup" 
=> "Firewall Configuration", it could be found that firewall is still 
by default.

Actual results:
Although installation provide an entry for user to disable firewall, 
it has no effect at all.

Expected results:

firewall selection can take effect.
