how to compile bttv support?

Hey, I just got a ati tv wonder card and it says its a bt878 video capture device.

well, When I go to my kernel to compile it with bttv support, its grayed out. I cant find any information on how to enable support for it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

As root,
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
Is Video For Linux checked yes?

Multimedia devices ---> <*> Video For Linux
