Description of problem:
Documentation for redhat-config-securitylevel does not explain if I can set both
tcp & udp with one Port reference, nor if I can set a range of  Ports with one
reference (ie 137-139), nor does it list the  port numbers normaly required for
a corporate network environment (ie samba), nor does it say what file these
settings are being written to.  All of these should be explained.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read the book

Additional info:

I believe that you should probably have someone less familiar with the products
read and edit the instructions for many of the components.

You can not set both tcp & udp with one Port reference, and you can not set a
range of ports with one reference (ie 137-139). The only valid options are
port:protocol combinations separated by commas.

A list of port numbers can be found in /etc/services.

The tool writes to the file /etc/sysconfig/iptables.

All this information has been added to the next version of the manual.
