Smile iptables doesnt work in my linux kernel

hello frnds
My linux version is 2.6.19-rc5.
My target board is MPC8555amc
I am running this linux version on the MPC8555amc board
here in the prompt it says iptables donot exist

-sh-2.05b# iptables -L
iptables v1.3.8: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

i also need iptables_filter , ip_queue modules to be installed
can u help with this
prethanks to helper

you must be root to execute iptables

try this as root

iptables -L -n -v

it helps to pipe the output to less
