Kernel 2.6.3 QM_MODULES not implemented


i compiled kernel 2.6.3 on slackware 9.0

it boots and works fine

the problem is that i have to keep the harware support for my pc as in built into the kernel and not as modules

for example , the soundcard and network card drivers have to be compiled into the kernel

if i compile them as modules
the kernel boots fine but it gives error messages during startup that

QM_MODULES not implemented

so it cannot insert the modules

even lsmod and modprobe commands do not work

they give the same error as above

whats the problem

incidentally i also compiled kernel 2.6.0 on slackware 9.0
it also gives the same problem

is the problem in the slackware installation or with the source code

i am sure the code is un modified and clen

i downloaded it from

please help me
