Did you type the '#'? The # represents the root shell prompt, and should
not be typed in. If you type it, it makes the whole line a comment which
isn't an error, but does nothing! Since chkconfig also produces no
output, it would be hard to tell the difference!

Not that I'm aware of. Do these two commands, and check that the second
command shows "Off" against all runlevels:

chkconfig iptables off
chkconfig --list iptables
