ipchains for several months, and I think 2.0.34 backported it (but I don't
follow stable kernels).)
I'm rather surprised that netload dosn't understand the new format -- I had
assumed that most Gnomers would be running bleeding-edge kernels (just got
2.1.109 myself -- I've been known to dl kernels before Linus finises
