	  I2C support -->
       	(M) I2C support 
       	(M) I2C device interface

                   (M) I2C PCF 8584 interfaces 

You can load the corespondig modules automaticaly by adding them to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6. If you do not want the modules to be loaded at boot, you can load them with the modprobe command.
