Unhappy Uninstall packages?

OK so here we go.

Red hat 9

The security levels gui doesnt have the other ports box in it which i need to use to open some ports in order to get windows file server working!

I have picked up the redhat config security rpm but when i try to install it it tells me that a newer version of this package is installed.

I can't manage to uninstall it. Possibily because i'm being a bit thick or maybe my PCs don't like me (i also have an xp machine that crashed halfway through setup and wont talk to me! )

I am about to throw all my machines out of the window and scream wibble at the top of my voice. Please help I only wanted to make things better!

I didn't know that redhat-config-securitylevel had an "other ports" box. But you can alter your firewall using iptables, you probably want something like:

#iptables -P OUPUT ACCEPT

and to open up your incoming ports:

#iptables -I INPUT -j ACCEPT -p tcp --dport [137,138,139]

replace the numbers in the brackets each time you enter the command.

If this doesn't work I'd check windows.

Are you trying to find your Windows files on your Redhat? Try looking in the /mnt directory to see if they were already mounted. If you are referring to another computer with Windows, have you looked into Samba?
