Default configuring IPTABLES firewall

Hi,
I am running Slackware 10.1 kernel 2.6.16.
I followed the instructions given in the following link -
http://www.howtoforge.net/custom_iptables_firewall
however with the modifications relevant to Slackware.
Now when I run the rc.firewall script I get the following error message -
Quote:
Starting Firewall services
firewall: Configuring Firewall Rules using iptables
firewall: No configuration file found at /etc/firewall/firewall.conf.iptables;
firewall: default policies set to DROP on INPUT/OUTPUT/FORWARD chains.
the /etc/firewall/firewall.conf.iptables file is missing. Have I missed something or there should be a default file somwhere?
Any suggestions?
