Hi Nambiar,
I tried to set up multicast routing on wanem! Most kernel settings seem to be available! Unfortunately the setting

"# CONFIG_IP_MROUTE is not set" in the kernel config (/boot/config-2.6.24.4)

which is required to run a multicast router like pimd:

Get:1 http://ftp.jp.debian.org testing/main pimd 2.1.0-alpha29.17-9 [80.6kB]
Fetched 80.6kB in 4s (19.7kB/s)
Selecting previously deselected package pimd.
(Reading database ... 53014 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking pimd (from .../pimd_2.1.0-alpha29.17-9_i386.deb) ...
Setting up pimd (2.1.0-alpha29.17-9) ...
Starting pimd: pimd: 14:59:33.589 cannot enable multicast routing in kernel: Protocol not available
invoke-rc.d: initscript pimd, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing pimd (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 255
Errors were encountered while processing:
pimd

Are there any special things to mention when rebuilding the kernel?

Thx,
Axel
