Right! because the kernel level instructions work more correctly when
configured in the kernel than the default one that the Distro people
use. Like i386 or i586 on a Intel or AMD new chip. I haven't played
much with a 64 bit machine but think of running a 64 bit machine on a 32
bit default kernel
Correct on the no change by using modules - but why by default should
this AMD Athlon-xp run correctly with Intel Pentium III instructions?
The main reason for modules over buildins is custom configuration.
Which allows a Distro to setup many different parts of a users machine.
