redhat users should use the file to install
quicktables. running that installation script copies the rc.firewall to
/usr/local/sbin, copies the init script to /etc/rc.d/init.d, and tells
redhat to start quicktables when the system boots up.

to run the install script simply type ./ from within
the contrib/redhat directory.

the init script also lets you use the "service" command to start and
restart quicktables. it also supports two different status views
using the status and status_nat commands. to see all the options simply
run ...

/sbin/service quicktables

to manually install quicktables issue the following commands ...

cp rc.firewall /usr/local/sbin
chown root /usr/local/sbin/rc.firewall
chmod 744 /usr/local/sbin/rc.firewall

you will then need to add "/usr/local/sbin/rc.firewall" to rc.local.
the location and existance of rc.local vary from distribution to
distribution. you can try issuing the following command to find
rc.local ...

find / -name rc.local -print

once you find the file simply add "/usr/local/sbin/rc.firewall" to the
very bottom of it.
