Please search the forums before creating a new thread. This question has been asked several times in the LQ forums. You probably require an initrd image for the 2.6 kernel. Also please read the documents on compiling a 2.6 series kernel as lots of stuff has changed since 2.4 days.
Also, update your modutils package.
