Iptables in fedora wont work properly

Hi I am a new to linux having upgraded from windows xp as I wasn’t happy with the security aspect of it and I have just purchased a copy of fedora but I cant get the iptables to work properly it seams to load R-H Firewall as default I have created two scripts with a lot of help from a friend one to make the 2.4 kernel better equipped against a DOS attack and the other as a firewall script I have added the commands into the rc.local script after creating the folder rc.scripts with the relevant files in the folder
sh /etc/rc.scripts/rc.kernel
sh -f -v /etc/rc.scripts/rc.firewall

But it doesn't seam to load the firewall script into the iptables memory can anyone help me please

Hello friends,

Friend nightmare6667,

You can try this mode:
Put your configuration file in a directory, like /usr/local/bin, and use the command: chmod +x /usr/local/bin/ Then, insert the following lines in your rc.d (boot):
sh /usr/local/bin/

I think the iptables are now loading

Hi thanks for your reply i found a mistake in my rc.local how ever i think they are now loading my rule set when i do iptables -L it comes up with some text that bares a resemblance to my script but what i am trying to do is have 3 computer networks

eth0 being the INTERNET address assigned by a dhcp server that gives my network card an address of

eth1 being an internal nic with the address of

eth2 being internal network two with the address of

eth 3 being network three with the address of

i want network one eth one to have access to the other two networks on eth2 and 3

i want network two to be able to have access to network three but not one and still be able to go on the INTERNET

and i want network three to be stand alone just with INTERNET access

i managed to get Windows xp to share the INTERNET for me and i turned off its file sharing and clients for Microsoft networking which just gave me the INTERNET to the second network but i am still a new to linux and unfortunately very new to iptables and masquerading nating and other names for it i would be gratefully for any help possible
