Bridge+IPChains

Has anyone successfully gotten a linux bridge to use ipchains rules? I've
read a bunch of howto's/webpage's on how to do it, but it doesn't seem to be
working. The bridging part works great. I'm using a recompiled 2.2.12
kernel. According to one of the webpages I read, I needed to apply a patch
to br.c. I did that, but the patch failed. When I examined the br.c source,
I had found that the patch is now part of the stock kernel distribution. My
main goal is to block DHCP traffic, so if there is a different/better way to
do this, please let me know.

Thanks,

Tyler Andersen
