While this isn't definitive proof, I found that disk a6 in the Slackware 3.1
release, which shipped with Linux kernel version 2.0.0, contains a
modules.tgz file:

Why does that not proof?

I don't see a modules.tgz file in any of the a series disks in the Slackware
3.0 release, which shipped with Linux kernel version 1.2.13, or any of the
earlier Slackware releases. This was back when Slackware was distributed as
a pile of floppy disk images, and the a series disks were the "base system"
portion of the distribution. That would suggest that loadable kernel
modules were added to Linux at the 2.0.0 kernel version level.

I agree.

:wq! PoC
