It would seem that I'm using the huge26.s kernel with the generic set of modules. Is that how it's supposed to work?
No, you don't need to change anything ... as long as it all works. Note that the modules that you installed work for any kernel of the same version number ... this means they work for both huge26.s and the generic 2.6.x kernel. So, everything should be just fine.
Remember ... if it ain't broke, don't fix it
BTW, I use the same trial and error strategy that you use to figure everything out ... that's why I fail so often, but also succeed where others fail
