Enable module support help!


I've recently installed RH9 and did full up2date, so im running 2.4.8-30.9 kernel.

I went to install wlan-ng drivers (wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre20) and it failed.

Modules disabled, enable loadable module support.

So, i need to to build my kernal with module support, but i dont have a clue how to! (bit of a newbie)

Can someonr please help or point me in the right direction.

Install the 2.4.8-30.9-kernel-sources rpm. Read /usr/src/linux/README. Copy /boot/config-2.4.8-30.9 /usr/src/linux/.config. Now run make xconfig and enable module loading. Run make dep. and follow the rest of instructions in /usr/src/linux/README.
