"iptabes": was it copied over or typed in by hand? (so is it a
typo somewhere in the package or not)

OTOH /usr/lib/iptables/libipt_tcprules.so is not present on my
system; need to look at iptables config file.

Umm... could you run "rpm -V iptables" and quote the output?
(should be something like this:
..?..... c /etc/sysconfig/iptables
..?..... c /etc/sysconfig/iptables_modules

Attaching /etc/sysconfig/iptables could help too.
