2 years ago, it was the Potato version of Debian and iptables was
*not* included in its since kernel 2.4 was not available...

Iptables is available from Woody distro. You just have to install
a 2.4 kernel like kernel-image-2.4.18-386 (or boot using bf24).

You may check /etc/modules for module loaded at boot and /etc/modutils/*
for an alias for eth1. It may be a wrong module loaded for eth1.

Each time I upgrade from kernel 2.2 to kernel 2.4, I have to double check
the ethernet driver name since some have changed! For example rtl8139 is
now renamed as 8139too which made me loose network the first time I did...
