Unable to load wacom driver module after compiling for a kernel

hi. i just compiled the wacom driver and everything seemd to go fine. Im following the howto on the wacom linuxproject page and it says to do rmmod wacom but when i do that it says:

ERROR: Module wacom does not exist in /proc/modules
the next step in the howto is to try insmod wacom. Quite obviously that would not work. The howto states this:

If you get errors inserting the module, then you may need to reconfigure and build with module versioning disabled. If it loads without a hitch, move on to the next part.
Do they mean reconfigure and build the kernel or the driver?

here is the page of the howto i am on:

thanks for any replies in advance.

sorry looks like doing make install after compiling put the driver in the wrong location so i copied it manually to /lib/modules/kernelversion and i can modprobe it and it shows up with lsmod.
