3.8.2 Modules

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 /etc/modules. I also use lsmod and 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 7.2, specifically Network function, Section 7.2.3.
