I have a server running SuSE 11 on a VMWare vm which has the following error when I start up csf:

iptables: No chain/target/match by that name

Thsi message is repeated for every rule in the list.  At one point I get locked out of SSH even though I have the SSH port opened.  I have to then stop csf to resolve this.  I have resolve all the dependencies that I can think of.  I do know that the -TARGET command isn't recognized by iptables but I don't know how to change this.  On openvz the fix for iptables was rather easy.  How can I get this error to go away?

The host node is running Windows 2003 Enterprise with VMWare Server 1.0.7

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

After reinstalling and tweaking so many variables I lost track the final change I made was a full uninstall of ConfigServer Firewall per their uninstall instructions that got rid of the config etc. and then reinstalled and this seemed to work.  I now get 3 options under ip_tables_target.  Thanks for the support, I have no clue why a reinstall worked differently but I assume it was the config or something that needed to be removed rather than overwritten.
