    I was under the impression that to get the modules installed after doing the menuconfig you could just do this to have everything done.

    make && make install_modues

    Correct me if I am wrong, that is how I do it on Gentoo.

    its in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
    i have tried going there many times and looking around, but changing anything in the file usually messes up everything at boot time for every kernel except the original 2.4 kernel.

    make modules_install



    ..

    and as long as you edit rc.modules _for_your_hardware_

    I dont see what the problem is

    does it build a correct module tree into /lib/modules?

    does 'modprobe -l | wc -l' list more than 0?
