What does this mean: Can't locate module block-major-33


I am running a linux software called altboot to install software on my xerox copy printers network controller harddisk but it keeps failing and I wonder what the error message means. Is it a cable, software or hardware problem?

I have pasted part of the log below...



modprobe: modpro/none on /proc type proc (rw)
create symbolic link `/lib/modul INIT: Entering runlevel: 2
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-33
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate moduleeth0: Setting full-duplex based on MII #1 link partner capability of 45e1.
block-major-8
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-33
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-8

What that is saying is that it is looking for a module called block-major-33. can you give more lines of information? Also what distro are your running this from? can you post your /etc/modprobe.conf
