Which kernel-image do you have? Try

dpkg -l | grep kernel-image

It should be one of the 2.4 series! The older ones do not support iptables!

If you have chosen a recent kernel, just try a simple

modprobe ip_tables iptable_filter

to load the kernel module for iptables and now an

iptables -L 

should work and show you the three "filter" chains!
