I just finished my install, which is good.  After a lot of faffing around
(being used to RH), I did an update-rc.d iptables defaults.  (This is after
setting up my rules, saving them, etc...)

Sure enough, the symlink was in /etc/rc2.d.  However on a reboot, the
service didn't start, and no amount of grepping through /var/log/messages
seemed to help.

Where can I look to debug this?  It must be something silly...

And another thing.  When I'm happy with my package selection etc, and I want
to install a similar system on another box, is the best way to go through
the normal base install, then do an rcp host:/ /?  It takes so long to
fine-tune the package choice - don't fancy going through that again...
