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.

You are correct, v1.4.6 does live in that directory.
I've ran the apt-get commands and it only listed the one package "iptables" to be removed. Once removed I ran the autoremove which showed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, and 20 not upgraded.
I guess with the iptables, I would just create a link to the directory /usr/local/sbin/iptables?
Now you have your /sbin/iptables command so you don't have to change any scripts. Now it doesn't matter whether a program refers to /sbin/iptables or /usr/local/sbin/iptables. They're the same executable.
Thanks for that; it's all been linked and is working well.
You've been an extremly big help and many thanks for that. I have another question I am going to post in another thread (because it's not directly related to iptables/imq) that you may probably be able to help with; but for this question; thanking you very, very much again.
