ipchains and RH 6.0

Well, I thought I should make the move to ipchains, since I am now running RH
6.0. But I have run into a snag.

With ipchains I am unable to figure how to do ftp.

I am not masqurading, just blocking. My workstation has a valid IP address, I
am just working on the input chain.

After I make an outgoing ftp connection, the ftp server is going to respond
back to me with the ftp-data part, but when I hit my favorite ftp sites,
ipchains is reporting:

May 29 05:04:41 mordent kernel: Packet log: lockdown DENY eth0 PROTO=6 L=44 S=0x00 I=61415 F=0x0000 T=61

This is me typing dir after I have sucessfully logged into the ftp server. It
looks like the server is sending back the ftp-data connection on some
random(?) port.

How do I assocate this connection with my inital ftp request?
