for the sake of completeness, the equivalent is:
cd /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/ (or /etc/rc5.d on debian)
mv S??iptables K??iptables
where ?? will be an integer rather dependant on the system. You've simply
renamed the link with K instead of S.
This means on entering runlevel 5 (the default runlevel on most RH
systems, it's 2 on debian), the system will kill iptables (K) as opposed to start (S) iptables.
That's a long-term measure, then you need to stop it by hand (or re-enter
runlevel 5, but this is simpler):
This is (to the best of my knowledge) what linuxconf does (when it works).
