Ok, I got a test machine going, added built in support in "make menuconfig" for everything i can think of, then re-compiled the kernel with "make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install" and when I rebooted, my ethernet, sound, and everything else isn't detected under lsmod. Is this because I did built-in support instead of modules? Please help..

Did you modprobe your modules after the reboot?

Yes, and it said for example on my nic, said "cannot find module 3c95x" or whatever the module name is (i know this is the right module). Is this because I did built in support[*] intead of module support [M]?

If you built it in then there won't be a module for it.

Thank you, that's what I wanted to know, but here's another question: why isn't my ethernet driver working if it's supposedly built in?

Thanks a mil for all your help

I'm not sure - are you sure you have the right driver? Can you post the output of:
lspci
dmesg

# lspci | grep 3Com
02:0c.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev 78)

Since i don't have connectivity, it would take to long to post Dmesg, but I didn't see anything in there about a NIC. Is this bad?

Well in your earlier post you said driver "3c95x" but I don;t think that will work with "3c905C".

Is this the one that you compiled into the kernel? SOmetimes even though it says the model it doesn't hit the nail on the head. I had one card that when I compiled it in it wouldn't work but when I compiled in the series of cards it was in, it worked... maybe that would be of some help?

It was something like that, although I don't remember the module name, but it did work up until I recompiled the kernel. I'll go back through one more time and make sure I didn't miss anything.

do you have to do anything specifically when adding built-in support? Like, for modules, i would do "make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install", but am I barking up the wrong tree here?

You need to copy the kernel to your boot directory so you can boot from it.
