[Shorewall-newbies] startup script

Hello everyone,

I just installed shorewall on a rp-pppoe router,
and i'd like to run adsl-start from the shorewall
start script, making sure that adsl is always
going online *after* shorewall is up & running.

Now, while booting the router, the following
message appears:

   Warning: Cannot set route filtering on ppp0

Does it mean that i have to restart shorewall
for proper operation, or that i have to start
rp-pppoe before starting shorewall, or may I
simply ignore the warning because shorewall
probably fixes the problem as soon as ppp0 is
online ?
