can't find modules for firewall script

I'v found a solution-in-the-box type of firewall script I have been using for learning purposes. There is one point in particular where the script loads certain modules. Now I am running a freshly installed FC2. The problem is that when the script runs throught the lines to load the modules, they are not found. The portion of the code is as follows:

insmod ip_conntrack_ftp
insmod ipt_LOG
insmod ipt_REJECT
insmod ipt_limit
insmod ipt_state
Then according to this solution, I should see a line after running the iptables -L command:

Chain RH-Firewall-1-Input (0 references)
This line is not showing. Any further information will certainly be provided upon request. Thank you for your help in advance.

What dist linux are you use?
You can try
modprobe iptables ...
to get error message
or use
modprobe -l
to list all available module for current kernel.
If no iptables module, it means your kernel not compiled with iptables module.
Or it's already compiled in.
iptables -L
show nothing?
