Where is the bridge configuration in the kernel?
It doesn't seem to be under networking.
Please give me a hint as to where to look.

I could just give you the answer, but here's a method that's handy if you're searching for a kernel option - look at the following link: http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/BRIDGE.html
Hint: Behind 'prompt' you see the text you should look for in menuconfig/nconfig.
The answer's right there, so I hope this helps you.

Hi you two,
very good answer from drumfire! But let me try to clarify this a little:
@donjames: You know of the possibility to "search" in menuconfig and derevates? Just hit "/" , followed by the pattern you are searching for. In this case, entering "bridging" should have lead to first results already. Mix this with a Google - Query to get a first idea of the best buzzwords and you should be able to help yourself in the majority of cases.
Does this solve your issue? If so, please consider to add "[solved]" to the threads topic.
I finally figured it out.
/usr/src/Linux make menuconfig
Select on Networking support --->
Then select Networking options --->
Then select <M> 802.1d Ethernet Bridging
Then select [\*] Network packet filtering framework (Netfilter) --->
Now you will see:
[\*] Advanced netfilter configuration
[\*] Bridged IP/ARP packets filtering
Thanks for all of the help.
