configuring kernel for firewall option

I would like to run ipchains as a firewall.

I am using the Debian kernel 2.2.18pre21 and notice
ipchains is installed already. However, the file:


... is missing. According to the Linux HOWTO, that
means my kernel is not set up for it.
Is there an easy way to add the firewall options
to the kernel on a Debian setup or do I have to
reinstall a new kernel from scratch? Do I need to
utilize the "kernel-package" to do this?
