Unless you can coerce Axel into enabling those modules and rebuilding 
the kernel, then putting it up on ATrpms. But I'm guessing he has plenty 
on his plate already.

Check out post #40 on the above mentioned thread. That guy says it will 
only take 5 minutes to do. I'm going to have to redo all of this here 
soon because I'm still running 2.6.21-3228. I've been hesitating to 
upgrade to 2.6.22 just because its all working now and I'm going to have 
to manually rebuild those when I do upgrade.
