You could try "file /sbin/SuSEfirewall" to learn what kind of
file it is. It's probably a shell script or done in any other
scripting language. Read the interpreter's documentation on how
to hunt down scripting errors.

If it's a Bourne shell script, do something like
sh -x /sbin/SuSEfirewall 2>&1 | less
or alternatively use what you learn from reading "man script".
When config files get "source"d, wrong settings or unbalanced
delimiters and other formatting errors can cause this kind of

To exclude problems introduced by your adjustment, try some
"generic" config instead of something you have customized. When
this runs fine, eyeball your modifications carefully.

BTW this shouldn't be a security related thing (no matter what
the script is good for). It's plain scripting and hence basic
UNIX users' knowledge. You might want to discuss this in general
UNIX lists.

If you don't understand or are scared by any of the above
ask your parents or an adult to help you.
