Description of Problem:

From FAQ-maintainer email....


It looks like their's a minor but irrating bug in the installer
I have been trying to setup a iptables firewall using a new install
of rh7.1 I read the docs that said if you want to use iptables
select no firewalling on install as otherwise it installs ipchains
I did this but it still loads ipchains at startup, this took quite
a few days to figure out why it wasn't working.

might be worth fixing this or changing to docs to explain more
clearly that you have to disable ipchains (i did it use setup util)
else iptables fail even if the chains are empty.

thanks

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

7.2

How Reproducible:

blah


WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE:

Review IPtables/IPchains sections of RG for clarity and make sure it
explains how to turn off IPchains...

p.s. This is for my own reference, Sam.
