Setting IPv6 up

First I gotta enable IPv6 in my kernel.How do I enable it as a LKM so I don't have to recompile my kernel?

The FC4 kernel already supports IPv6, you don't have to do anything there.

In FC4 do the following:

Start the network configuration tool. If you cannot find it in the menu, you can launch it from a command console with
Double click the interface for which you want to enable IPv6.

In the "General" tab, check the "Enable IPv6 configuration for this interface"

Accept your changes.
