Firewall crashes on F16

Hello All,

Have searched but to no avail..

Am new to Linux and have installed Fedora 16.

Am opening the basic firewall config - 'system-config-firewall'

and the initial screen appears and the firewall screen greys out and freezes. A few minutes later the message appears saying:

The window "Firewall Configuration" is not responding. It belongs to the application system-config-firewall (Process ID = 3509, hostname = localhost).
Do you wish to terminate the application process including all of its child windows?
Any unsaved data will be lost.

Any ideas please..

Sorted..its OK..can tell I'm a beginner...

I was attempting to open the firewall through a VNC connection which was prompting me for the ROOT password on the remote PC..!!

My bad....cheers anyway...
