-- NO. I did exactly as what you said:
1. set my rules in /etc/sysconfig/iptables

2. edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config and set
IPTABLES_SAVE_ON_STOP="yes"
IPTABLES_SAVE_ON_RESTART="yes"

3. run service iptables restart

4. run iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-- after that, I checked the file /etc/sysconfig/iptables, it does have what I
set, the only change is the timestamp.

5. reboot

6. the file /etc/sysconfig/iptables goes to the "oroginal" one and no port is
opened -- all of my settings are gone.

That is not useful. I discussed with several other people before -- it does
not provide the way to set source IPs.  I will try Firestater.
