rpm -q iptables
  --> to see it is really installed

Don't use insmod, if you think you need to manually load kernel modules,
then use modprobe. But this is not needed if you use the iptables
service.

Run "service iptables restart". If you did not already manually change
the /etc/sysconfig/iptables configuration file and made faults, it will
(re)start the service.
