[CentOS] Start scripts ordering

Hi All,

Was wondering if you could help me out.  At work we are running CentOS 4.2 as 
our mailserver/firewall.  The script in question is  /etc/rc3.d/S08iptables.  
As this starts before the network adapters are set up, it hoses our iptables 
script resulting in denying our internal hosts internet access.  

What I would like to do is mv the script to /etc/rc3.d/S11iptables so the the 
interfaces are up and then the iptables script kicks in.  It is in this way 
that we find it works best for us.

However on a reboot we found that the "system" moved the script back to it's 
original name of  /etc/rc3.d/S08iptables.

How would I "tell the system" to keep the script named 
as /etc/rc3.d/S11iptables so that it does not automatically rename it back 
to /etc/rc3.d/S08iptables?

Thank you in advance,
