In the OP you mentioned that this is Slackware. Whilst there are 
numerous good reasons why one might wish to compile a custom kernel, 
it's worthy of note that the Slackware stock kernels as configured 
"Just Work" perfectly with iptables.

The best Slackware advice I have is to start with Pat's config for the 
basis for your new kernel. Second best: just use his kernel and 
modules. Slackware-current has 2.4.31, and those packages will work 
seamlessly in any 2.4.x-capable Slackware release (that's 8.0 and 
later. And don't forget the alsa-driver package.)

I generally only compile custom kernels for high-end machines, like 
those with RAM >= 1GB, or SMP.
