Add single Module to Kernel Suse 10.1

i'm hoping to mount squashfs isos (LiveCD format)
however the default Suse 10.1 doesnt support squashfs

I've used the squashfs guides
the mksquashfs tool installed correctly
and the kernel-sources patched correctly with squashfs

however even after installing the new kernel with squashfs set as a module
it doesnt work / isnt available
and i still cannot not mount squashfs files.

Is there an easier way without replacing the entire kernel?
What am i doing wrong? :S
# uname -a
Linux linux-desktop #2 SMP Sat Nov 18 13:21:22 EST 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

# find /lib/modules/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko'|grep -i sq

# modprobe squashfs
FATAL: Module squashfs not found.

well it looks like
1) patch failed
2) you did not update grub (and still booting to default suse kernel)
3) you have made other mistake

Also, remember that in most cases you will need a clean (original) Linux kernel source from
while this;
# uname -a
Linux linux-desktop
does not look like "clean (original) Linux kernel source from"
