This most likely means that either the kernel has not include LVS,
or it has been compiled as a kernel module but it is not being loaded
for some reason - LVS should do this automatically.

If you are running a custom kernel that is older than 2.4.21 then you
will need to go to and apply the patches
available there. If you are a running a Mandrake supplied kernel
then I would guess that LVS is included - though I am not sure.
Try running "modprobe ip_vs", or perhaps searching to find
which Mandrake package includes ip_vs.o
