Just to expand this a bit...

Go to Device Drivers -> Networking support -> Wan interfaces -> Wan
interface support (y or n only).

In the 'Wan interface support' menu, check 'Generic HDLC layer' (y, n, or M).

Inside the 'Generic HDLC layer', there are a few support options (y or n)

The above layout is for CentOS-5, but CentOS-5 is similar.  Hope this helps,
