Yes, but I received responces from the systems where multicasting disabled in the kernel.

IIRC kernel level MC support is only for if you want to be on Mbone, not
if you want to use it as a client/server.

But the option called "IP: multicasting" and help:

This is code for addressing several networked computers at once,
enlarging your kernel by about 2 KB...

And Mbone is the standard network, that supports multicasting (routers, computers...). As I understand, there is no special support for Mbone, this is support for Multicasting.
