    I found these on Google...

    HowTos/BuildingKernelModules - CentOS Wiki
    Compiling Kernel Modules

    Do they provide what you need? The first one is for CentOS, but the principles should be the same. The second one is aimed at developers so is a bit more in-depth.

    Or try the README that comes with the kernel source, right in the root of the tarball. It's all there...

    Which method are you using to obtain and compile the kernel ... see here for Arch specific example. See the guide here for module loading, plus more information on modules here.

    It looks like an assignment to me. In any case, as suggested by other members, we need a bit more info.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
