Install ALSA drivers with fedora core 1

I am having problems "make install"ing the most recent alsa-drivers (0.9.8)
in fedora core 1. The error I am seeing is :

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in

at the end of the install script.

The drivers seem to compile fine, though.

Here are the results of the 'make install' :

[chapman@localhost alsa-driver-0.9.8]# make install

/bin/sh: line 1: modprobe: command not found

WARNING!!! The mixer channels for the ALSA driver are muted by default!!!
You would use some ALSA or OSS mixer to set the appropriate volume.

[root@localhost alsa-driver-0.9.8]#

Has anyone else run into this problem and found a solution?

Thank you for your help.

Fedora does not consider /sbin part of the path.
If you:

export PATH=$PATH:/sbin

and then try again, the modprobe command can be executed.

you can also just install them with apt by addind this to your sources list

rpm fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms

The site has been down today but I installed it yesterday including the kernel module.
