Just doing:

ln -s /etc/init.d/iptables /etc/rcS.d/S38iptables

would had done the trick for you. The "S38" in the symlink tells
the /etc/init.d/rc to execute /etc/init.d/iptables as:

/etc/init.d/iptables start

Symlinks that begin with "Sxx" are executed as 

/etc/init.d/<script> start

and those that start with "Kxx" are executed as

/etc/init.d/<script> stop
