Well, I never had any module in my kernel, since I didn't see the
point. Of course, I know that it can save some memory, but then again,
I've got plenty. So I end up not knowing anything about modules and
can't be of any great help there.
And about the flashy thingy (think you meant your cursor), maybe your
shell is a bit freaked  by something. Typing reset helps me almost all
the time in these cases. If you're working in frame buffer mode it's
another story, of course. I once found that very handy, but sometimes,
after a kernel upgrade, it went bogus because my videocard was
supported better.
