Don't forget to harden the underlying OS before installing, a
point which the manual makes no mention of. I've seen FW-1s running
on a Sun with Sun's shipped sendmail. Hmmm. If you're already
running FWTK, you've probably done this, but there are a number of
vendors who say 'our OS is good enough for a firewall.'
