enable module support in RH9

I thought that it would be enabled by default but as i was trying to install a program called CDemu so i can mount bin/cue images got this msg ->

make -C /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build SUBDIRS=/root/cdemu-0.6_beta modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8'
The present kernel configuration has modules disabled.
Type 'make config' and enable loadable module support.
Then build a kernel with module support enabled.
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8'
make: *** [all] Error 2

this is RH9 default install.

how can i enable module support?

You have to recompile your kernel with module support built-in. In your /usr/src/linux (versionnumber) folder run "make menuconfig" then you can change it. After that you have to recompile your kernel but it's a bit different for distributions so I can't give you exact directions also becaus IIRC your kernel needs other commands cause it's older.
