You can use iptables or ipchains without having to rebuild
the kernel.

But the RedHat kernel does ship with the ipchains.o
"compatibility layer", so when that is loaded, the old rules
should continue to work.  (And in fact, the default RH 'lokkit'
configuration uses ipchains.) If 'lsmod' doesn't show the
'ipchains' module being loaded, you might try manually loading
it with modprobe or insmod, before trying to insert your rules.
