-First you will need a recent 2.4.x kernel. At the time this document was

+First you will need a recent 2.4.x kernel. If you have a kernel &gt;=
+2.4.18-pre8, it already has the kernel suport for ULOG (ipt_ULOG.o).
+If you have an older kernel version (between 2.4.0 and 2.4.18-pre6), you
+can use the patch-o-matic system of netfilter/iptables, as described in
+the following section.
