Do you use programs that send out a lot of pings at once, such as the
quake server finder (xqf)?  Programs like that will fill up your
masquerade table very quickly.  Try shortening the masquerade
timeouts.  The IP-Chains-HOWTO.html is at
http://www.rustycorp.com/linux/ipchains or something like that.

This is assuming that your masquerading works to begin with.  If you
have no table entries and haven't really started anything, I wouldn't
know where to begin guessing.
