yes, but then you must know that netfilter eats up much more 
memory than the previous ipchains.
I think maybe this is the problem; having a netfilter firewall 
with reasonable set of rules requires 32-64 RAM (it depends)
I think I saw this discution on the netfilter list stating this...
sorry, I didn't follow the disscution here: does it swap a lot?
