Netfilter provides a compatibility module for ipchains.

I would recommend to use rcf (aka rc.firewall).
It is pretty good in terms of what you can do in terms of 
port based firewalling. In the forsable future it will be 
ported to netfilter and is extremely flexible in what kind
of network topologies it can support.

The is a .deb package for it but unfortunately it is not yet 
officially in Debian.
