Comment 1 John Ha 2005-01-18 12:31:31 EST
Thank you for reporting this mistake. You are correct, "ACCEPT" should
be the jump target in the example. The error has been fixed and a
documentation erratum for the error will be published subsequent to
the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

Thanks again for your report.
