How to install iptables for FC6? is there a yum install?

Hello, I'm a newbie and I'm trying to install iptables from, but I'm not really sure how to install it unless "yum install iptables" does everything for you. i haven't tried it as I've lost SSH connection into my firewall and need to go down to the office and test it.

Any ideas of what RPM package i should install, or is it automatic with the yum install?

I've done a yum install conntrack as i was getting some error messages pertaining to iptables and conntrack as not working.

Any help gladly appreciated!

Iptables should already be installed on Fedora 6 (at least it comes preinstalled on every other version of Fedora -- I have not tried 6).
