you don't, if its compiled into the kernel then its there and ready to be used. Just edit /etc/modules.conf to set up the modules you want kmod to control.

i was just wondering if you were using the standard
kernel, but i've seen the kernel modules loader in the
kernel configuration tool, and there's notsetting to make
it a module.
