You are aware, naturally, that ipchains doesn't work properly on  a  2.4 
kernel (I think)? 2.4 kernels use iptables -- the kernel  firewall  guys 
can't leave anything  alone,  so  they  rewrite  the  whole  firewalling 
subsystem with every new kernel release :(

That makes sense, although surely eth0 will be connected to  your  cable

Two things I learned for sure during a particularly intense acid trip
in my own lost youth: (1) everything is a trivial special case of
something else; and, (2) death is a bunch of blue spheres.
