Netfilter support in table or kernel ?

Nice feature of MS Outlook is to easily add address as contact and then
specify how E mail is sent per contact. Did that instead.
IPTables are not listed in ismod output.
There are not any folders beneath usr/src. I have not compiled the kernel
fresh install from Redhat 2.4.
In another response the Jeffery Humes said look into
/lib/modules/'username'... There was only one folder beneath .../modules
and that was /2.4.7-10/
Below that folder was /kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter and there was a file a file
I assume from all of this that I have iptables compiled into the kernel.
I am having problems but I am working towards the solution one question at a
What are the advantages to doing it either way.

nice background. Unfotunately MS Outlook has the habit of making emails
unreadable for some mail clients other than MS. Please set your Outlook
to use text-only for internet mail. Or both RTF and Text.
assuming netfilter is working an you are just curious:
shows you all currently loaded modules. If it's not there and it's
working, it's in the kernel.
assuming that your kernel was compiled on your machine. (Works for
# cd /usr/src/linux
# cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
or whatever your kernel version is. (linux or linux-2.4 is as link to
the directory which actually contains the kernel sources.)
# make menuconfig
go to 'Networking Options'
go to 'IP: Netfilter Configuration'
