RE: iptables install
I am using the packages from Adrian Bunk, they work great.
Add the following to /etc/apt/source.list:
deb http://people.debian.org/~bunk/debian potato main
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~bunk/debian potato main
With this you can then use apt, capt or dselect. (The tools that make me so
fond of debian.)
I hope this helps.
