    For what reason do you require to do this ?

    but most of them pick themselves up
    and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

    yes.

    Because my current modules folder is not x.x.x.x-default but x.x.x.x.

    Ok,

    which kernel version you compiled ? 2.6 or 2.4

    If you using 2.4 you had to type
    make modules
    and
    make modules_install
    while compiling new kernel.

    For 2.6 just
    make
    and
    make install

    And which steps did you go trough while compiling
    new kernel, because if did right, then new kernel should
    be automatically connected to its modules.

    /lib/modules/kernel-version/ directory stores all modules
    for specific kernel version, so look do you have that directory
    for kernel version you are currently using, and than we
    can see what to do next,

    regards
