    modprobe: Can't locate module ip_tables
    iptables v1.2.4: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
    Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

    What is it and how can I fix it?

    Get the iptables RPM from www.rpmfind.net (or freshmeat, whatEV)....... get the RPM version that matches up with your OS release and install it.

    Your new kernel has iptables support instead of ipchains and that is what bandmin is trying to summon since you have updated your kernel.

    What kernel version is it?
    And, if you do a search on this forum for the exact issue here, you will find we've beat this particular procedure to death quite a few times....

    Did you compile ipchains or iptables support into the kernel under network options ?
