Both RH7.2 and RH7.3 ship with an iptables kernel. The reason why it
probably doesn't work for you, is simply because ipchains was loaded
alrdy. Ipchains is RH's default firewall. All you need to do is
chkconfig --del ipchains
so ipchains doesn't load on boot or you can delete the ipchains firewall
i don't think you can just do a service ipchains stop, but i could be
and then implement your iptables firewall using the iptables command
iptables -A .....
after you done with that you can save it to a file using
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables save or service iptables save
hope this helps
