I agree about Shorewall.  I've been using it for several years, and it
does take a lot of the pain out of managing iptables.

That being said, I will add my voice to the others on this list that
point out that the OP's mods to /etc/sysconfig/iptables are very
dangerous, and indicate a lack of understanding of how iptables and
network security actually operate.  Some study of basic principles and
best practices is essential to managing a firewall configuration,
regardless of the tool that is used.

My $0.02 (US) worth for today.
