Problem with Shorewall Firewall & IPTables


I am using SuSE7.2 and I have installed Shorewall, and have added IPTables to my SuSE install via YaST2, I have configured firewalls before so I guess the rules and such I have set up are OK, but I have only ever configured Gauntlet, so this is quite different, anyway, I used Webmin to configure Shorewall and when I run it everything looks good, all the rule look to be applied OK and then at the bottom I get this error, and then shorewall fails

iptables v1.2.1a: Maximum prefix length 29 for --log-prefix
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
Processing /etc/shorewall/stop ...
Processing /etc/shorewall/stopped ...

So it looks like the problem I have is with IPTables, anybody have any help on this.

personally I would just use an iptables script that you can find posted everywhere and not use any other software. This takes a little more learning though. I also don't do any logging b/c the last time I had lgging enabled I ended up killing the hdd. I know that I had too much being logged but I realized for my personal use I really won't use them.
