Re: rh firewall policies?



Hi
I have tried to install firestarter on my server rh6.2, but i have failed
because i can't get gnome the prerequisite for firestarter installed.
Installation of gnome requires a lot of dependencies to be installed
and most of them are not on my rh6.2 CD.
Anyway round this ??

Ted
