I have a Red Hat box with a 2.4.9-ac12 patched kernel running otherwise smoothly (ie. IRC, ICQ work fine) but the FTP and IRC file transfers do not work. i've tried searching help for this problem and tried all sorts of stuff but I think what I am missing are the ip_masq_irc/ftp modules that you need to modprobe.
I've tried locating them but there's no such thing as a /lib/modules/2.2.9-ac12/ipv4 directory. Can I make the transfers work with IPChains WITHOUT the masq modules?
I know I should probably update to IPTables in stead of IPChains... if that is the case, can I just fetch the package, install it and use it as I do ipchains now? Here's the part of my rc.local file concerning the masquerade:

do you try to load ip_nat_irc and ip_conntrack_irc ???
maybe loading this modules its works..
the same is for ftp transfers... we need to load ip_conntrack_ftp and ip_nat_ftp
probably a very good idea,but like i said, i have none of the aforementioned modules installed :)
i found them later on from the net but they're source code, not compiled modules - how can i compile them and use them as is? is gcc enough?
