iptables: command not found


This is error message I got on mine RH, kernel 2.4.20-28 after executing rc.firewall script.

./rc.firewall: iptables: command not found

It looks like iptables are not there anymore or....?

This is lsmod output:

OK mistery solved.

We were under impression that this machine had iptables by default but acctually it didn't.
This is RH7.2 and looks like iptables were still not default option at that time.
