Oops, sorry it didn't even occure to me to post the file.    So I ran
"system-config-securitylevel" and it offered me the chance to enable
so I did.  It returned the prompt with no message so I'm assuming that
ment it worked correctly.

I then ran "service iptables restart" to see what would happen and I
got the same error message as before.  Here is my iptables file, hope
it's readable.

Thanks again,
