script: stop firewall

I need to stop the RH 8.0 firewall in a script.
I have a script file that starts and connects with VPN,
but first the firewall needs to be stopped
(I've been doing it via LinuxConf thus far)

Apparently, ipchains are old news, and I must concern myself with iptables.
This line doesn't seem to work, though it does do something:
service iptables stop

What do I need?
