In my defense, I assumes it worked the same way as ipchains, where
interrogation of the rulebase would fail if you hadn't started the services
Obviously iptables loads the base config automagically, whether called from
the init scripts or not.

May be very obvious, but in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d (or whatever your default
runlevel is) check the symlink to iptables and make sure it looks
something like S??iptables, where ?? are numbers.
