Modules for the device drivers are configured during the initial installation.
modconf provides menu-driven module configuration afterward. This
program is quite useful when some modules were left out during the initial
installation or a new kernel was installed after the initial installation.
All preloading module names need to be listed in
depmod to control them manually.
Also make sure to add a few lines in
/etc/modules to handle IP
masquerading (FTP, etc.) for 2.4 kernels. See The modularized 2.4 kernel, Section
function, Section 7.2.3.
