SuSE uses this to get around some Problems regarding Security
during the Boot-Process.

First closing everything, then, after Network config,
opening specific Ports/Interfaces.

IMHO there are two ways to handle SuSEfirewall.

   Let Yast do everything.

   Yes you have to configure Yast anyway ;-)
   Yast supports some Files for youre own rules.

   Deinstall SuSEfirewall and use something different.
