Sharepoint list - Change an existing column type, so that it is required

lambch0p used Ask the Experts™
I have a list in sharepoint which is already in use.  I've been asked to change some of the fields, which are currently optional, to mandatory.  If I edit the columns, the option to set them as 'Required' isn't there.  Does anyone know how to do this?
