ipmasq is just convenience package. If you run ipmasq with -v, you get
actual scripts it runs. You can write equivalent as a part of init.d
scripts (most likely as a part of rc.S for debian).
Writing to proc system is turn on ipmasq function in kernel. NAT
configuration shall be done through ipfwadm?(I forgot), ipchains or
iptables unless you have very special hack which I do not use.
see my comment on different thread.
