Re: Modules

When you recompile the kernel, the filesystem support you want to
support as a module, you hit the M key for module when you do either

# make config


# make xconfig


# make menuconfig

I am assuming you know how to compile the kernel. Here are the basics
in case you have never done it. 

# make menuconfig
# make dep
# make clean
# make bzImage (long part)
# make modules
# make modules_install
# make zlilo

reboot your machine.

Once you do that, run modconf and select the filesystem module support
you want.

# modconf

It might be under the misc section

I would read the kernel compile howto before doing this if you are at
all concerned about messing up your system. If you system is for experimentation
purposes, and you can afford to screw up, gopher it!

Here's a tip, I would not compile your main filesystem support as a module.
(i.e. - if you are using the ext2fs as your main filesystem, I think it needs
to be directly compiled into the kernel.)
