Try http://www.netfilter.org or
They have the source and links to 3 or 4 HOWTO's there.

You need a kernel which has the netfilter infrastructure in it:
netfilter is a general framework inside the Linux
kernel which other things (such as the iptables module) can plug
into. This means you need kernel 2.3.15 or beyond,
and answer `Y' to CONFIG_NETFILTER in the kernel configuration.

There is the NAT-HOWTO by the same folks. See above links.
