    kernel compile newbie, want to add 'Wireless LAN (non-hamradio)'

    slackware 10 2.4.26, i want to add wireless support through the kernel by
    Network Device Support->Wireless LAN->Wireless LAN (non-hamradio)

    the kernel compile steps i'm trying to follow are combined from 3 or 4 peoples
    experiences compiling their kernel

    kernel compile steps were
    backed up old kernel
    cp /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.old
    cp /boot/config /boot/config.old
    cp /boot/ /boot/
    mv /lib/modules/2.4.26 /lib/modules/2.4.26.old

    added to /etc/lilo.conf
    # Backup Image
    image = /vmlinuz.old
    root = /dev/hda2
    label = oldlinux

    in /usr/src/linux
    make mrproper
    make menuconfig
    - only thing i did was 'Y' for Network Device Support->Wireless LAN->Wireless LAN (non-hamradio)
    make dep
    make clean
    make bzImage
    cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz
    make modules
    make modules_install
    cp /boot

    system comes up but lsmod shows no modules

    thank you

    if it's not compiling any modules when you do "make modules" i would be leaning towards that "make clean" in there.
