This is the standard error one gets when iptables is loaded *after*
ipchains is also loaded. As root, do:

/sbin/service ipchains stop
/sbin/chkconfig --del ipchains
/sbin/modprobe -r ipchains

then try your iptables stuff again. Since you have experience with
iptables on another server, I doubt that you would make this newbie
blunder...but never hurts to be sure.
