1. How do you, if you can, restart the SuSE firewall. I am not using the

OK, this touches on something I've never been able to figure out, and
I'd be grateful if someone could further enlighten us.
At boot time SuSEfirewall runs several times, called by several of the
init.d's, while concurrently the network gets established by other calls
to (in my case) dhcpcd and such.
It seems important that these run in tandem and not, say, one at boot
time and the other later. (For dhcpcd needs open ports to do its thing;
and SuSEfirewall needs the assigned IP for some of the rules it makes.)
So if I wanted to restart *both* at a later time (e.g. in the event that
dhcpcd timed out at boot time), how should I proceed? I guess this ought
to be doable without reboot... but I never found out how.
