not exactly. it only means that he did not read INSTALL, and did not
prepare its kernel source tree properly.

if someone is interessted to use 2.4.9 kernel, I guess he wants to use
some (slightly outdated) RH enterprise product for some reason.
they for sure have modules enabled.
you "only" need to make the kernel source tree you compile drbd against
match the configuration of the kernel you want to use drbd with, which
most likely is your currently running kernel.
