See, if whoever compiled the kernel would have let it be a loadable module the kernel would load it as needed. So what they di was not compile the support into the kernel more then likely. I really doubt you will find a 3rd party module to compile into the kernel since is already build into the kernel. If they left all the sources on the system just goto the /usr/src/linux directory and do a make menuconfig and just add the support. As long as you have the config file it will load all the current configured options when you start to make it (I think you can even do it without the config since it is a working kernel). You won't have to worry about the vmlinuz linking and such since you will be adding this to your current kernel. Hope I was a help! And don't be scared to do this, just watch what you are doing and you will be fine. make menuconfig,make,make modules_install, and you are done!
