Ipchains And Iptables

I have red hat 7.2 and I just installed squid.
Im new to all this and I am wondering what are IPCHAINS and
IPTABLES? And when or where would I be able to use them?

Thanks for any responses!

Firewall tools. IPChains for 2.2 kernels, IPTables for 2.4 throws up lots of results.

Iptables is more complicated, newer version. Ipchains is older and simplier, but still good. And easier to learn.
