Stupidity.. removed /lib/modules/


I wasn't paying attention and removed my /lib/modules/2.4.20-mdk directory
I really wanted te remove /usr/src/linux-2.6.2 after unsuccessful kernel update

I'm pretty afraid to restart my computer at this point.
I'm trying to recompile my 2.6.2 kernel so that i can use that if i loose my original but I don't know enought to make that work I think.

Don't know what to do with menuconfig.. I just changed my processor pretty much

Is there a way to undo the damage.. I figure I'll loose all my hardware support once i reboot.

you can just reinstall the kernel rpm (or even upgrade your kernel) from mandrake's website
