Problem with connection tracking in IPtables!!

Hi to all,

I am using Fedora Core 5 with an upgraded kernel of I installed iptables-1.3.7 on it. However, I am not able to use connection tracking. I checked all the items in Networking options related to connection tracking and iptables. However, when I boot in my kernel, and issue the comand "service iptables start", I get this:
[root@localhost ~]# service iptables start
Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: raw mangle filter [ OK ]
Unloading iptables modules: [ OK ]
Applying iptables firewall rules: [ OK ]
Loading additional iptables modules: ip_conntrack_netbios_n[FAILED]

[root@localhost ~]# locate ip_conntrack_netbios
[root@localhost ~]#
It seems that connection tracking is not being activated. How can I solve this problem?

Warm regards,

You seem not to have enabled the ip_conntrack_netbios_ns module when you compiled your kernel. Go back and enable CONFIG_NF_CONNTRACK_NETBIOS_NS and recompile your modules and reinstall them.
