Increase nf_conntrack value

|Hey guys, sorry to bother you with this newbie question (maybe?), but i'm pissed off right now.. can't find any good information on google.
I want to edit the nf_conntrack value 'cause I'm being DDoSed and my /var/log/messages says nf_conntrack is full...
I know how ip_conntrack can be modified.. but I can't figure out how to edit nf_conntrack (installed FC 7...)
Thanks alot guys
ps: if there are any additional settings i must edit on apf to work with nf_conntrack please warn me about it.

|It seems to be a bug in kernel you are using, turn off hardware checksum offload and those messages will not appear.

|Also try to upgrade kernel on server , that may fix your issue

|Well if you are DDoSed why dont you use APF and antidos module in apf ? that may resolve DDoS issue ..

|you could have easily found it in google, most of what you have to edit is in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/
Here is all you need to know
Its not gonna help you though if its consuming your pipe. If its dropping packets because of syn_backlog or contrack apache or most other services couldnt handle the requests anyway
Oh yeah, if you are ever on efnet come in #cpanel and look for rfxn, he is an expert on this stuff. I do know you can set some of that stuff wrong or too high and it mess some things up so I would definetly read up on it if I was you.
