This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

now i want to firewall my box with iptables script but i dont have iptables, only ipchains??? i thought kernel 2.2 had cahins and 2.4 had tables? i know i dont have iptables i looked in /sbin and /etc/rc.d files and have found nothing. Any help
YES IM ON SLACK 9.0. I HAVE IPTABLES WHEN I OPEN kPACKAGE
(A APPLICATION TO INSTALL RPM'S ON kde. WHEN I OPEN THAT IT
SAYS I HAVE IT AND THAT ITS INSTALLED BUT ITS NOT IN /SBIN
OR ETC/RC.D THATS MY PROBLEM, IPCHAINS IS IN /ETC/RC.D
SO IF I UNINSTALL IPCHAINS WILL IPTABLES AUTOMATICALLY SHOW UP. I DOUBT IT BUT ANYTHINGS POSSIBLE, OR WOULD IPCHAINS WORK AS GOOD FIREWALL, BASICALLY I DOWNLOADED A IPTABLES SCRIPT AND IT WONT RUN CAUSE IT CANT FIND IPTABLES ANYWHERE, YES IM CONFUSED BUT I REFUSE TO GO BACK TO MICROSOFT..REFUSE!! REFUSE!!! REFUSE!!!!

I have a file in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ named iptables. I believe this is related to starting the service on booting. My rcx.d/ directories have links to it.
However, whereis iptables lists /sbin/iptables and /lib/iptables, so check there.
