    for file in $( cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ipv4 \
                   && echo ip_masq_*.o | sed 's/\.o\>//g' ) ; do
        modprobe $file

That should catch everything.

Probably.  Come to the Carbondale meeting tomorrow (3/5) for more on
that.  :-)

See Documentation/Changes in the kernel source tree.  On a recent
distribution, you should be able to just upgrade modutils (which you
need to do for 2.2.19 anyway) and install iptables (for the
firewalling stuff).  Most other stuff should work well enough.
