Description of problem:
Why is ISDN turned on by default?
Why are ipchains and iptables both set up?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Install Skipjack again.

Actual Results:  ISDN service is set to run by default.
ipcahins and iptables are both set up.

Expected Results:  There should be no ISDN services as there is no ISDN capable
devices on my system.
As what goes to ipchains and iptables then if I am not mistaken, they does not
play together, and there is no point of running them both on the same system.

I agree with these comments.

IIRC it's the same with lpd too.

Fortunately it's not as bad as it looks because all those services actually
don't really start up until they are configured.

What I'd like to see is a way to configure services at install time like
Mandrake does it.

I would concur.  I also really like Mandrake's installer that asks "Are you SURE
you want to install these servers?"  This would be good for Red Hat to have
because many newer users install too many servers that they will never use,
while experienced users can simply click "Next".

Then later it gives you a chance to disable installed services before the first

iptables & ipchains both only run if there is a configuration for it.
Similarly for ISDN.
