I think I figured out ALL of my past kernel problems. You have to rerun lilo after every kernel recompile. I usually just leave a /boot/bzImage as a test image and have an entry in lilo that reflects that. Well if that file changes you have to rerun lilo to put it in the MBR. I never knew that! Now that I've done that I can get my kernel 2.4.3 to boot like a charm. The only problem I have now is I can't find iptables to run masquerading.

You probably need to download iptables....you can build the functionality into the kernel, but chances are your distro doesn't have the iptables executable by default. If you run debian, just grab the iptables package using apt-get.
