module net-pf-4, kernel recompilation

I have been recompiling my kernel to include sound-support
and get rid of some of the defaults from the one installed
directly via redhat 4.2 installation.

When I boot the system it says:
modprobe: cant locate module net-pf-4
modprobe: cant locate module net-pf-5

Is there something I forgot to include in the kernelcompilation or what?

NB - Despite the above the bootprocedure finishes correctly
and I can login afterwards. The sound-utilities work,
but there is some strange behaviour when an ordinary user
tries to make a ppp-connection.

It's nothing to care about.
put:

alias net-pf-4 off
alias net-pf-5 off

inn your /etc/conf.modules and you will not get the message anymore...
