Mandrake 9.1 shorewall

Hi all,

How to disable the shorewall of Mandrake 9.1.
I don't want to use the built-in firewall of Mandrake.

Just open the mandrake control center. Select "security" and then click to configure the firewall. Select "everything (no firewall)" when you are asked what you would like the internet to be able to connect to.

Hmm... on the flip side here, I want to enable the firewall, but when I go to install it, I get this message:

"Sorry, the following package(s) can't be selected:

shorewall-1.4.8-2.1.92mdk.noarch (due to unsatisfied rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1)"

Any ideas what's going on, and what to do to correct this situation?
