    When I restart bastille, I get:

    Setting up IP spoofing protection... done.
    Allowing traffic from trusted interfaces... done.
    Setting up chains for public/internal interface traffic... done.
    Setting up general rules... done.
    Setting up outbound rules... done.
    touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/bastille-firewall': No such file or directory

    There is no subsys directory--is that a problem?

    A related question:

    I was thinking of installing APF firewall http://www.rfxnetworks.com/apf.php which I've been using for some time on my other server, but I wonder if I might run into any problems using it with ISPConfig?

    I like APF because it makes it easy to ban ip's and automatically ban's ip's of anyone trying brute force and stops dos attacks.

    You can use any firewall with ISPConfig, just make sure that you disabled the ISPConfig firewall before you install another one.

    And I do that by just unchecking firewall in the ISPConfig admin or is there something else I need to do?

    Till or someone can answer that please?

    Also, if I don't change from bastille, is

    touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/bastille-firewall': No such file or directory

    a problem?

    Just unchecking the tickbox is fine. Actually it's even not checked in the first place right after your initial installation. I have Shorewall running nicely alongside with ISPConfig.

    You can get rid of that message by running
    mkdir /var/lock/subsys/
