Ipchains on Linux 2.6.5 (Fedora Core 2)

I'm challenging out of my operating systems class in school and I asked the professor for a project.

The guidelines we're a vanilla flavored LAMP server with SSH, and Telnet and FTP that denies internet connections for the last two daemons.

I decided to take it a step further and got another professor to hand me a copy of the (broken) firewall.
The neat thing about it is it uses ipchains instead of the current iptables.

And yes, I'd like to use iptables, but I'm going with the school's standard because while it is broken, it's not terrible.
So please, purists, lets not deviate off track asking me why I don't just use iptables.

At any rate, I know I need to patch the 2.6 kernel to allow ipchains
I know iptables and ipchains cannot coexist.
And I'll need to build ipchains from source.

All not a problem.
However, can someone point me in the right direction with getting the kernel ready for ipchains?

On the decease , dead, unsupported ancient Fedora Core 2 . Have "fun"

Any and ALL and i do mean ALL programs AND THERE DEPENDENCIES must be built from the source .

Some of those dependences will require the REBUILDING of about 95% of fedora 2 ( you will be building fedora 10 from scratch - for the most part ).
and you do know fedora 2 went "end of life" on July 2005 , 4 years ago
and will not run on some NEW hardware .

Sounds like fun.
I did realize FC2 was unsupported. It didn't really matter to me because everything else I threw at this 15-year-old i586 wouldnt take.
(Slackware, Debian, ZenWalk, FreeBSD, CentOS, etc)

I'll just start converting the firewall to iptables
