First off, decide whether you are using ipchains or iptables. Then forget
the other one. If you mention both in your posts, no one will know what
you want to do.

Second, get things working with a Debian stock 2.4 kernel; that way you
can be sure that the necessary modules exist. You can compile your own

Running iptables should load the necessary modules automagically, but you
can always load them by hand to make sure you have them:
  modprobe ip_tables
Don't use insmod ever unless you are very sure of what you are doing.
