firewall error? couldn't load target "accept ...ipt_accept? error

working on a new iptables for my firewall and got one error left to see it run.
flushed the tables and tried to load my new rules and got"

couldn't load target 'accept'
cannot open shared object file No such file or directory?

Does this look familiar to anyone? There is no ipt_accept file in /lib/iptables
(there are a dozen other similar ones, etc..)...look like executables... On google, virtually no info on what ipt_accept might be? is there a module to load first? can't seem to locate one? My Old simpler table from a different source runs ok?

commente dout the following line and it works
$IPTABLES -A udp_packets -p UDP s 0/0 --destination-port 53 -j accept note : ACCEPT not accept probably?
probably should be capitalized? and I will comment out for now anyway because I am not running DNS yet.
thanks anyway?
still what the heck is ipt_tables?
