Whichever interface you use for configuring the kernel, most items offer the choice of y, m, or n (in the xconfig interface these are represented by a tick in the check box, a dot in the check box, and an empty check box, respectively):

■ m means "Compile this option as a module.''

When you have saved your configuration, you will have a new .config file. This is the one you will use when you start building the kernel.
