First, You should read the kernel and netfilter HOWTOs carefully.

secondly, don't just compile in netfilter - I gave the reasons why you
shouldn't during my talk.  Build it as modules.

What you've probably done is built netfilter with the ipfwadm
compatibility compiled in, which is mutually exclusive with iptables
and ipchains support.
