Are you sure that's the number of modules, or simply the number of
compiled object code from the 3483 or so choices of .c source under
drivers/  ?  For example, the SysKonnect FDDI PCI adapter driver is made
up of 19 linked .o files.

Still, 130 is a bit large for the dummy net driver ;)

Umm.. check that your .config has FOO_FEATURE=m for everything that you
want as a module.  Try building 2.4.20 instead of 2.4.19 in case this
was simply a "feature" of vanilla 2.4.19 (which I've never built ;)
