I don't think loadable kernel modules were added to Linux until the 2.x
kernel version, but I'm having trouble finding confirmation of that. I
think I started using Linux somewhere around the mid '90s. Whenever it was
that I started with Linux, there were no loadable kernel modules. The
kernel had to be recompiled to add and/or remove various drivers.
You got me doubting. :-) For verification, I just booted up an old 386
with Debian 2.1, utilizing Kernel 2.0.38, and /lib/modules already
contains modules. So, your claim is wrong.
