I have Mandrake 9.2 with kernel 2.6.1 and shorewall blocks everything
except the local keyboard.

I read the coution note and installed a stock rpm from shorewall.net. I
have tried to follow the docs and have struggled with shorewall for
about a week now.

I think Mandrakes initscripts interfear with shorewall. At boot 
Mandrakes initscripts does something with iptables. Should i throw out 
Mandrakes iptables and install some other one?

If i understand things right shorewall should do all handlling of 
iptables, right?

The shorewall box got two ethernet cards and eth0 is is using dhcp to
Internet and the other card to a local net of a couple of boxes I want this box to have a caching nameserver.

Thanks for any tips
