Only if these systems are running kernel version 2.2, the 2.4 NAT system
has been rewritten and is not vulnerable.

This also applies to Linux NAT gateways.
I'm rellay not an expert in building a firewall with a Linux box, but
I've tried twice and now I have two customers happy of their
unexpensive Linux based firewall. These firewalls offer also NAT
functionality to the respective LANs they protect and use iptables
rules with stateful inspection to filter the packets. Both customers
have a DNS in between the linux firewall and the ISP's router. Are they
vulnerable to any of those attacks?
