Enabling v6 as builtin??

For some specific requirement I need to build a 3.2 linux kernel on FC14 with IPv6 as built-in rather than as module. But after compiling the kernel, when i try to install it, it fails with an error saying "module ipv6 not found". Can anybody shed some light on what's going wrong here.

Here are the steps that i performed:
1. make menuconfig: in this i changed v6 from M to *.
2. make
3. make modules
4. make modules_install install.

At step 4, it fails with error: "Error: modinfo: Could not find module ipv6"

Was that the only error you got?
When you ivoked "make modules_install install" , did you become root or use sudo?
