I don't believe this is possible. The drivers for various NIC's are
pre-compiled as modules, though, in most Linux distributions.

Re: Kernel compilation ..

Visit the Kernel HOW-TO at www.kernel.org or www.linux.com.
Basically, you need to download the kernel sources and then run "make
xconfig" (if you have X installed) or "make menuconfig" (if you're running in
console mode) to setup the options. In your case you will want to pay
particular attention to the NETWORKING section.

Good Luck,
Dave

Sorry, the current version of linux kernel won't let TCP/IP being compiled as a module.
