I thought that the linux kernel didn't support modules for ppc, at least not for
the 2.2.5 kernel which I got from the linuxppc.org site.  It is the
embedded-2.2.5 kernel put together by Dan Malek.

I assume that the newer version do support modules.  Is this true.
Would this be true of all ppc targets such as 860, 8260, etc or is it just for
common workstations like PowerMacs, etc ?

What kernel versions support modules on ppc ?
