     78Summary: On the Linksys WRT-54GL (and most other devices, you'll be editing files on a READ-ONLY file system. 
     79Since the filesystem is a collection of symlinks to a readonly filesystem, you can't simply edit files -- they're readonly. Instead you have to delete the symlink, and copy the file so you have a writable version of the file to edit:

     81rm /etc/init.d/S45firewall 
     82cp /rom/etc/init.d/S45firewall /etc/init.d/ 
     83vim /etc/init.d/S45firewall
