Redhat 9 recompile kernel for "module" support?


i have always been very affraid to recompile my kernel, but seems now i have no choice. i am sure only the first time is somewhat "scary" but decided to write this msg anyways..

This weekend i have a project to do and for this project i have to enable module support on a RH9 box (out of box kernel). Is there an easy way to do this in KDE/GNOME? click a few things then restart?

If not if there are any KERNEL howto's for RH9 if you can please post, i see LOTS of howto's for linux in general but from waht i hear RH is somewhat 'diffrent' ?

the out of box kernel would have module support built in already.
