Firewall problems with NFS

I have a firewall problem with running an NFS server on FC6 or FC8, due 
to the GUI configuration interface not opening the firewall when I check 
the NFS protocol support. It seems to only allow use as an NFS client, 
since that worked fine when I tested it.

I can put the needed rules in the "RH-Firewall-1-INPUT" chain, but 
mixing GUI administration and manual administration is undesirable to 
prevent unexpected behavior, conflicts, etc, in the future. Is there 
really no way to open the ports for NFS server other than by hand?
