Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running gentoo. I have iptables installed, I am using guarddog as a frontend. When I try to run guarddog it tells me ip_tables module can't be located. I have confirmed this with modprobe ip_tables and insmod ip_tables. I have been searching(for a solution) for a while, must be in the wrong spots.
Is this the procedure I should be following. using make menuconfig to enable the modules to be made, then running make modules(the whole procedure to make and install modules). If that is right, I can't fing the place in make menu config to enable with an M.
Or am I way off base, could you point me in the right direction.
I am getting frustrated. in make menuconfig what do i need to enable as modules. I enabled some of what I thought I needed. When I ran guarddog it loaded some modules, just enough to lock me out of the internet.
below is from my make menuconfig. Any suggestions would be apreciated
