Module error

Hello, guys!

I am newbie in this OS, but i had to recompile my kernen (2.4.18-14).
After i launch the new kernel, linux displays lot number of copies of the following string:

Can't locate loadable module net-pf-1

when i attempt to execute many commands.
somewhen i even cant't see any stuff that my program normally displays.

Looks like, there is a link in somewhat configuration file that calls attempts to load that module. BUT WHERE?

note - rmmod command doesn't want to help me

Sorry for possible mistakes - english is not my language.

Welcome to LQ

It's likely trying to call these from /etc/modules.conf If you comment out (place a # in front of the line containing the call for that module) the section regarding modules you no longer need (or compiled into the kernel) then the errors should go away.

If you have no idea what I am talking about please post up your /etc/modules.conf file and we'll help walk you through it
