Okay...hmmm...I'm not familiar with the kernel-image's, but I have to
assume that socket is in there.  Check by searching the
/boot/config-2.4.19 file.  It might be a module (CONFIG_SOCKET=m)
which would put the module somewhere in /lib/modules/2.4.19-?.  I
don't know what the module would be called to insmod it.  Probably
something like socket.o or the like.
