I Saw some Broadcom "drivers" in the Kernel Make Menu config area, and
that didn't work.

Do you think its a matter of me running some Loadmodule command in a
script to make it work then?

Note, in the kernel I checked it with the ASTERISK which is supposed to
compile it into the kernel
versus being a loadable module.

Is it possible I need to "load" (turn on?) a module that is compiled
into the kernel with a command
in a script somewhere?

That would be SWELL!
