Connection tracking is a new feature of netfilter that allows you to accept or deny a packet based on the state of the connection rather than the strict allow/deny of ipchains. NAT of course stands for Network Address Translation, the key feature behind IP Masquerade. The other entries in this menu are optional, enable them as you please and recompile the kernel if needed.
