Agreed. I always test a firewall rule set in memory before committing it 
with "service iptables save", so I don't get into that particular 
situation. However, I haven't been able to upgrade my kernel because 
there's no way for me to revert to a working one if the replacement doesn't 
work. I'm waiting to get a terminal box hooked up to the serial port (the 
box has BIOS support for a serial console, as does GRUB), so I can make 
that upgrade.
