fedora 8 livecd kernel module issue

I created a fedora 8 livecd with livecd-creator and tried to install a kernel module of my own.The problem is that I have a bunch of commands to execute in the %post of the kickstart file that aren't working.If someone could explain why I'd be grateful

rm -rf /dev/char_device
mknod /dev/char_device c 101 0
chmod 777 /dev/char_device
/sbin/insmod /lib/modules/
mknod doesnt seem to create the device and insmod says
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/': -1 File exists

Can anyone help me with this?

Doesn't this mean that the module is already loaded into the kernel?

If you can do a lsmod you should spot it...
