Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
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.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. 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.

IIRC it maintained its own list of IP's to block, and also a log of port scans etc.
When i installed it on slackware, i did put the command to start it in rc.local, but i had written my fw script in a new file rc.iptables, and was calling that from rc.M. Evenso, it should be ok to start PS from the same file as your iptables stuff.
To recap... No, it is unlikely that it will interfere with your firewall script.
I am quite interested in Slackware. I installed it once [ Phew!] lets say i learned a thing or 9 when I was installing it, after the install I had to manually edit the XFree86 file [WoW!] that was the first time I had ever seen that file, never mind editing it [ ToTal Newbie ] but hey it worked. Although I think I was using Gnome-0.-1, I could have hung a wet duffal coat with half bricks in the pocket off of some of the desktop icons.......Also darkseed2g3,excellent Quotes:
