Here's the problem...

I downloaded the release of Mandrake 8.2 and when installed, I attemted to configure iptables. I can't even list the rules in the default chains (INPUT, FORWAD, OUTPUT) - it just spits out errors at me. example:

[root@localhost root]# iptables -L FORWARD
/lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.o.gz: init_module: Device or resource busy
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod ip_tables failed
iptables v1.2.5: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Has anyone esle had this kind of problem with Mandrake 8.2 and if so, what was the fix. Or....any help at all would be great. Thanks a ton.
