Make sure you have redhat-config-securitylevel installed with:

rpm -qa | grep redhat-config-security

If it's not listed do a:

yum install redhat-config-securitylevel

command

the command i had to use didn't start with redhat. i found another command that started with config or something that i found in the red hat user manual. I understand the one that starts with redhat is for an older version of liunux.....how was i too know. It did bring up the firewall settings so i could add my nfs port to it.

Yep they changed it system-config-securitylevel when they stopped shipping Red Hat Linux and created Fedora.
