I don't think this is intended to help with serving. It seems to handle 
the forwarding of Quake packets to clients behind a masq box, so that when 
a client behind the masq box connects to a server, UDP packets from the 
server are sent back to the client. 

Kernel 2.4 seems to do this automagically. I've never loaded any 
Quake-specific kernel modules on my 2.4-based masq box, and I've never had 
any problems with Quake (Q3|Quakeworld) playing.
