    how to install/insert a new module in linux kernel 2.6.5


    hi,
    can any one suggest me how to install a new module (eg: sctp.ko) in linux kernel 2.6.5
    hope 'insmod' won't work in this version of kernel coz it will be depricated with modprobe.


    thanx in advance,
    R. Kiran Kumar.
