Believe me. I wrote the damn thing.

USE_FW decides if you run a firewall script at startup. FW_TYPE decides
which script you run (if USE_FW=yes).

If you still don't believe me, look at the code :

if [ "${USE_FW}" == "yes" ]; then
  ln -snf "/etc/init.d/iptables" "/etc/runlevels/boot/iptables"
  if [ "${FW_TYPE}" == "firehol" ]; then
    ln -snf "/etc/init.d/firehol" "/etc/runlevels/default/firehol"
  else
    ln -snf "/etc/init.d/shorewall" "/etc/runlevels/default/shorewall"
  fi
  DONTDEPSCAN=0
fi

With USE_FW=no, you won't have iptables, you won't have shorewall, and
you won't have firehol. Whatever you put in FW_TYPE.
