I didn't want to try to learn the internals of iptables (blush). I found a
gui frontend to iptables called "guarddog" that is really easy to use.
Guarddog uses /etc/rc.firewall as its script. I never used redhat's
firewall, so I'm not sure where it is located. Go to
www.simonzone.com/software/guarddog and take a look. It will meet your
needs (providing you can live without redhat's firewall).
