Actually, I didn't screw this up...
[root@lanfest1 usr]# rpm -e ipchains
error: package ipchains is not installed
The problem is with the default module build shipping with the beta. And
since I don't have the source rpms (dialup here), I'm not in a position to
Greg, I thought that was you trying to install ipt_MASQUERADE. Unless
it changed with the most recent kernels that is not one of the modules
involved. Of course, your "screwup" might have been entirely excusable
if it was an automated firewall setup tool that tried to add that module.
And given how tenaciously Red Hat hung on with ipchains I'd not want to
