Question APF firewall

After upgrading the kernel from 2.4.29 to 2.4.33, apf doesn't load at startup anymore. Does anyone know why? Which file does apf write to in order to autoload at boot? I want to know if the line got erased. Thanks in advance.

It could be started different ways. Section 2.1 of this document describes two ways that apf might be started at boot time. Did you download apf or did it come with your distro? If the latter, what distro are you using?

EDIT: I just noticed which distro you are using ... Unless you installed it yourself and started it from rc.local, I think you should be able to use chkconfig to see if it is enabled. If you don't know how to use chkconfig, check its man page. (I know roughly what chkconfig does, but I have not used it.)
