suse 12 iptables

I have installed SUSE 12 with the firewall disabled:
<enable_firewall config:type=“boolean”>false</enable_firewall>
<start_firewall config:type=“boolean”>false</start_firewall>

iptables -L -n

target prot opt source destination

Would you have any idea on how to disable iptables during the SLES installation?

Thanks and BR/

Good luck.
