SubjectShared memory not enabled in 2.4.0?

For some reason shared memory is not being enabled on my system running kernel
v2.4.0 (on RedHat v6.2, with all updates applied).

Per the documentation I have this line in my /etc/fstab:

none /dev/shm shm defaults 0 0

Yes, I have created this subdirectory:

# ls -l /dev | grep shm
drwxrwxrwt 1 root root 0 Jan 7 11:54 shm

No complaints are seen at startup, yet I still have no shared memory:

# cat /proc/meminfo
total: used: free: shared: buffers: cached:

Is there some configuration option which I missed? Some trick not mentioned in
the doc?

Thank you.
