Where do I enable ide-scsi module in kernel config?

it seems that while configuring my 2.4.23 kernel, i have mistakenly disabled the ide-scsi emulation module, and my startup says that the module isn't found

where do i enable this in the kernel menuconfig?

sweet, thx to both

basically, i just enabled the specific options as shown in the link and found these options under the SCSI menu and the other major IDE/ATA menu

once that was done, did the normal kernel compile and module compile, but remember to make sure that /dev/cdrom is a symbolic link to /dev/sr0 and that there is a line "append /dev/hdc=ide-scsi" in lilo.conf (or just pass the option to the kernel any other way)

*/dev/hdx is the location of your cd (rw) drive

once that was done, everything works great
