Maybe the firewall is not working perfectly (how would I know?), but
ipchains worked when I add the above two to my kernel config. ipchains
could be a module.
http://keesan.freeshell.org/bl/2.4.31/bzimasmf.431 and confsmf.431
Support for s - sound and scsi (modules)
f - framebuffer (vesafb, and modules for matrox, riva, aty)
f - ipchains firewall built-in
also built-in ide-zip
The two 'Y's added 22,202 bytes to make the kernel 699,539.
My little laptop kernel is 603K - no sound, scsi, framebuffer etc.
I will add firewall to it eventually.
Doc said this is proxy method and works better but it is harder to set up.
Not that hard with instructions.
