Guarddog Firewall Error

Couldn't get guarddog to open as root, so I tried msec 3, yes my setting was on paranoid :lol: , but nooooow.... :shock: ...I get this message, and I am leaving it until someone tells me what I should do, so please help a linux newbie out, opened up guarddog as root from CLI, and this popup appears:

"GUARDDOG" <--- (titlebar)
Guarddog was unable to read the file at /etc/rc.firewall as being a Guarddog firewall.

This probably means that this file is not actually a Guarddog firewall.

This is not a problem, but please note that if you exit Guarddog via the 'Ok' button this file will be overwritten.

If you do not want this to happen, then after closing this message, immediately quit Guarddog using the 'Cancel' button.

Also please be aware that the firewall settings shown may not represent the system's current firewalling configuration.

(Detailed message "Error reading firewall file. This does not appear to be a Guarddog firewall file.")
Is it possible that this is an issue dealing with iptables because I do not have iptables running, and guarddog needs that program to be running in order to work , correct?? someone please help! ops:
