Thanks for your reply, much appreciated.  I am fairly certain I do have 
iptables built into my kernel.  The reason I believe I have iptables 
installed is because I was playing around, adding/removing simple rules 
(i.e. ping) from an online tutorial and that seemed to work ok ...I have 
rebuilt the kernel myself several times to include more and more modules 
that kept appearing to be missing.  I am using kernel version 2.4.26 on 
a Debian Woody dist.  Not sure what to do now...sorry I don't know any
