ipchains runs under 2.4.x kernels if you enable the "ipchains" modules
in the firewall config section of the kernel

if you are using a generic 2.4.x kernel with all the modules..
The initial question was asking for tracking connections,
thing that iptables offers and not ipchains.
Iptables is not that different from ipchains just
need to rtfm a little and find out how to configure connectiontracking
and a couple of other handy things. What's the big fuss?
If you don't want connection tracking and a more secure
firewall, then stick with ipchains. No problem.
