Oh -- and you should heed the warning on the Shorewall home page regarding 
Mandrake's "Internet Connection Sharing"; Mandrake apparently doesn't want 
you to be able to use my documentation directly so they have decided:

a) To call the local zone 'masq'; and
b) To leave an empty zone called 'loc' so that any rules that you add for 
'loc' will not produce errors but will simply be ignored.
