Selinux - iptables and other errors



Here's some Selinux messages from my system log just after a 
system reboot about half an hour ago:

Oct  2 22:24:13 tehogee kernel: audit(1159842231.053:4): avc:

In a different thread today, I'm reporting some smartd errors - I 
wonder if there's any connection. I'm wondering what 
those "dev=proc ino=########## etc..." mean. Can anyone make any 
sense of this? 

Also, during startup, I get:

eth0 is not ready
touch: cannot touch "/var/lock/firestarter" : Permission denied
fatal error: your kernel does not support iptables
Firewall ### not started
rm: cannot remove "/var/lock/firestarter" : Permission denied

Moments later, Firestarter starts up seemingly normally, and when 
I boot up to the desktop, eth0 is working just fine

Theories anyone?
