You did, and I figured that just meant I'd have to add it to the kernel
post-install.  I'm just a little confused in the wording.

And you're right, you mentioned it before.

"Compile it into the kernel. Seriously, you'll never get the option
in the installer if the module isn't there..."

I guess I could have figured that out myself, but this English language
isn't as good as, say, C++.  :-p  I didn't see "The module isn't on the
CDs", so I didn't put 1.5 and 2.5 together to get 4...

Then this made me wonder if perhaps I misunderstood and the modules were
really there.

I think I got it now, but is there any way I could load a module off of
a floppy or another CD?  Would Anaconda be happy after that, or are
there other things missing, like mkfs.reiserfs?
