Correct, so how is this done and where ? Once you figure that part
out you have what you need to do what you want to :)

Change into your source tree, look for this file:
Kconfig is used by the KBuild system that menuconfig uses.
Look for the section:
bool "TCP/IP networking" <-- change bool to tristate, save and run make
Now you can ask menuconfig to build TCP as a module.
But... it may be better to if you can use:
One last thing, heed the warnings in Kconfig they are there for a reason.
Good luck and what exactly are you trying to do ? Am curious.
