red hat 7.1 iptables error


i'm trying to start iptables on Red Hat 7.1.
i've erased the iptables rpm that came with the default installation, and update it into 1.2.5-3

i'm trying to use, and if i try for example 'iptables -L' i get:

# iptables -L
modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.7-10/modules.dep (No such file or directory)
iptables v1.2.5: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

any ideas?

Hmmm.... did you perhaps install a version of iptables ment for a different distro? I'm not sure where Redhat 7.1 keep its list of dependencies, but it looks as if it might be in a different place than where iptables is looking.

Thats my best guess.
