I want to add a new security patch and to enable with kernel 2.4 downloaded from kernel.org. I have added the security patch

in /usr/src/linux2.4 by using the command

patch -p1</path for security file.

the problem is i can't find a new option to enable the security option in

make menuconfig .

I can't find the traces of where I have added the patch.so I can't enable the security option and to compile a new kernel image

But I can see the option in the default redhat 8.0. sine its an optimized one, I can't use it for my project
