ds: no socket drivers loaded

Hi all,

At bootup, after compiling the new 2.4.7 kernel from, I see a message fly by that says: ds: no socket drivers loaded.
Although I don't see any direct impact on my system, I believe I misconfigured something during kernel config. Could someone point me in the right direction?

It sounds like you havn't included any socket support! This is required by a lot of programs, especially anything to do with networking. I think its under the general network configuration menu when you do a 'make menuconfig'
