patch-o-matic problem

Im having problems to apply p-o-m to the kernel source. Ive done the followings:

1. installed iptables 1.2.11 in /usr/local/src/iptables
2. unpacked patch-o-matic-20031219.tar.bz2 in /usr/local/src/iptables/patch-o-matic. In the README file says that after setting the KERNEL_DIR (which is /usr/src/linux) i have to run ./runme pending. Though the script is executed it doesnt apply any patch to the kernel, and it gives me this:

Warning - no help text file could be found in either
or /usr/src/linux/Documentation/
fgrep: /usr/src/linux/net/ipv4/netfilter/ No such file or directory
Could not find place to slot in line
Can you tell me where am i wrong?

PS I have Slackware 10.0 and 2.6.10 kernel
/usr/src/linux is a link to /usr/src/linux-2.6.10 where also is unpacked the 2.6.10 kernel source.

If you are in the patch-o-matic directory, just run ./runme pending or ./runme extra
It will ask for the kernel and iptables directories when it starts..

The latest version of pom is
and iptables is

If you use the distro kernel sources, you must have the current headers rpm installed as well.. and you can copy your current /boot/config--- as /usr/src/linux/.config to get a good starting point.

10x the problem was solved. I think that the problem occured because ive used a depricated pom.
