config modules, y, n, ? for scanner installation


I am following detailed instruction on how to install my scanner on RH9. The first step went well, but the second is some kind of scary...

I have to type the command:
> cd /usr/src/linux
> make modules

The reply is : make modules not enable, see config modules (some other instructions)

I did that but I do not know if I should type y, n or ? for each module presented to me and the list is very very long...

What can I do to enable make modules easily with no mistake?

when you type:
grep MODULES .config (in /usr/src/linux directory)... if you obtain the following line:
It means that modules support is enabled... so "make modules" should work.
If you don't have module support enable, you have to recompile your kernel to make it available
