OpenSuse not starting

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello, I'm having some major issues with my laptop. When I start my computer, the login screen does not come up, but instead the command line appears. The command line shows an error repeatedly: Code: FATAL: Module ip_tables not found. iptables v1.4.2-rc1: can't initialize iptables table 'filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?) When I try to start the computer in safemode, I am able to login, however no internet connections appear in knetworkmanager, and I can't create a new connection. Prior to last shutting down my computer, I started to update using yast (graphical). I cancelled it part way through. I'm thinking what may have happened is the kernel may have updated, so no many applications are incompatible. However, I am not super familiar with linux, so I have no idea how to troubleshoot this issue, or how to fix it. Can someone please help me? I desperately need my computer fixed asap! Currently, the bootup screen shows Kernel 2.6.27.39-0.2 (I think it used to be Kernel 2.6.27.39-0.1). Also, although this may be irrelevant, every now grub comes up with a 'winter' look with penguins rolling around, while other times it shows the regular green grub screen comes up. I thought that was a bit odd... (Distributions)
