Except that the original poster is using the 2.4 kernel, for which divert
sockets do not work.
For 2.4 the netfilter module is cleanest, followed by netfilter QUEUE to
userspace (although this will give a performance hit).
When I had to move from 2.2 with divert sockets to 2.4, I used a netfilter
module with commandline parameters to pass in arguments.
