Routing multicast with RH7.1/Linux 2.4.2

I am trying to configure a multicast router and am encountering a couple of
Although I have compiled with CONFIG_IP_MCAST=y, all my mc_forwarding's are
set to 0. If I try to echo 1 into them, I get:

bash: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/<any>/mc_forwarding: Permission denied

Is there any way to set these to 1?

Additionally, is Mrouted or some other routing daemon still needed for
routing multicast with the 2.4.2 kernel or not? If so, has anyone had any
luck compiling mrouted-3.9-beta3 on 2.4.2?
