Samba and Firewall

Suse 8.0 
Using SuSEfirewall2. For my LAN I have got this in the script. 
FW_SERVICES_INT_TCP="139 631 4559"
The 139 is my Samba port. I have found it necessary to start the SuSEfirewall2 
script manually if I shut down my system for some reason.
This script is found in /etc/sysconfig.
