    What actually happens when we boot from a new Kernel?

    Hi all... I am a linux newbie... I have compiled my kernel and booted it. I made simple modules and inserted them using " insmod " . I found that except the modules that I have made all the default ".ko " module files are present only in the original kernel. So my question is are we booting into an entirely different kernel or the kernel that I ve compiled and the original kernel are dependent..?

    You are actually booting a different kernel. The diffferent kernels are located somewhere in the
    /boot directory and the modules are located in the /lib/modules/kernel-version directory.
