User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18 alpha)
Description of problem:
Due to the age of the iptables tools shipped with RedHat Alpha 7.1, when a new
copy of the tools is installed and the rpm version removed, the startup script
won't work properly any longer. I've patched the script and will provide it as
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy iptables script from init.d
2. Remove iptables from system.
3. Install iptables from tarball.
Actual Results: iptables init.d script wouldn't work properly (assumptions are
made about the location of iptables, et al.).
