Hello Everyone,
	I am getting ready to switch a FreeBSD 4.11 machine from IPFW to
IPFILTER for better FTP and NAT support.
	I currently have IPFW compiled into the kernel.
	Do I need to recompile a kernel without IPFW before I can enable IPF?
	Can I just set IPFW to allow everything by default?
	Thanks in advance for your advice.
