Thanks Fabian - I'll look at that. I ported the tutorial from a generic 
one I'd written, hence I'd tried to stay away from upstream specifics, 
but good point and worth adding IMHO.

I didn't cover the modprobing of additional modules simply because none 
of my examples needed modules that aren't loaded by default when 
iptables loads.

My intention was to provide a basic starter guide to get folks started 
with manually configuring their own rules. Obviously there is so much 
more that could be covered (iptables can be a never-ending topic), I 
would say that if anyone wants to build upon my contribution and add 
further examples, then yes it would be useful to pick examples that 
allow for modprobing of additional modules to be covered. I guess that's 
my way of politely saying I don't have the time to significantly expand 
on what I've contributed, but I would be more than happy if others wish 
too do so :)
