krn 2.4.30, iptables 1.3.1, last pom and condition extension problem

I had trying to use -m condition iptables extension module, but when I 
see /proc/net I cant see ipt_condition directory and I can't make it.

I try to put in --condition parameter an absolut path, the iptables 
command had no problem running, but seems it allways assume "1" when I 
put "1" or "0" into it.

I use lines as these:

#> echo "0" > /my_conditions/ipp2p_on
#> iptables -A FORWARD -m condition ! --condition 
/my_conditionss/ipp2p_on -m ipp2p --ipp2p -j DROP

And, the idea is, to enable or disable ipp2p software transfers is only 
put "1" or "0" into the condition.

¿Some helps about this problem?

How can I make the /proc/net/ipt_condition directory?
