No, but /etc/sysconfig/iptables had previous config so I purged the file. I haven’t rebooted
since to see if its starts again.

I noticed on another machine that had iptables disabled in chkconfig that after setting it to
on, I couldn’t even start it with service iptables start until I issued an iptables -F? I was
just about to start exploring why that is now :)
