I finally worked out why I had no support for IPTABLES.
Following the instructions is a bit incomplete:
Networking ---> Networking options ---> [*] Network packet filtering
(replaces ipchains) ---> IP: Netfilter Configuration ---> <M> IP tables
support (required for filtering/masq/NAT)
*you need to do one more step:*
turning on <M> IP tables support (required for filtering/masq/NAT)
you have to actually enable the type of IPtables support you want
I don't know what I need so turned most on (*or <M> as module*)
<M>IP range match
<M> Multiple port match
<M> TOS match
<M> recent match
<M> ECN match
<M> DSCP match support
Perhaps this is obvious to people more skilled in customising/compiling
their own kernels.
But to me it wasn't and I assume from the number of similar questions
not to alot of people either.
So I hope this saves somebody a bit of pain.

actually it seems to be a xen0 as I can run guest xenU inside of it.
