Iptables can't locate its modules

I'm trying to set up iptables using kernel 2.4.23. I've installed
iptables and iptables-dev from testing and I've enabled CONFIG_NETFILTER
but all attempts to execute the iptables commands produces:

root:~:# iptables -F
modprobe: Can't locate module ip_tables
iptables v1.2.9: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Google produces various references to this problem but no solutions that
I can see. Should I have included other things in the kernel? Any simple
documentation for this? 

Or is it perhaps overkill for a standalone machine, albeit one that is
constantly connected to the met?
