Loading modules with 2.6.0

I compiled my kernel to 2.6.0, but now none of my modules work. I have no sound, no usb. I tried modprobe alsa, but that says that it can't find the modules. I believe that I compiled modules for sound and usb, how can I get them running?

Is there anything I can do at all to fix this? I was able to bring sound online for a while using the snd-emu10k1 module. However, everytime I reboot, I have to reload the module, and reconfigure the soundcard. The same goes for ethernet. Is there something I did wrong during the kernel compile that has left my system in such a shambles? Also, what drivers would I want to load to bring usb support back up? Thanks.

To get modules to work automatically, you'll need to edit some sort of initializing script so that they are loaded when you boot...

In Slackware, you would uncomment (or add) applicable lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

Earlier today I managed to compile 2.6.0 just how I need it for my system, and I had to change this so that my ethernet card would be modprobed automatically.

I don't really know anything about getting the usb devices to work... I would just check to see that you've compiled the kernel with all of the appropriate usb options/modules selected, and if you have modules, make sure that they are loaded.

Good luck. Google is your friend

Hope this helps <g>
I added this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local

/sbin/modprobe snd-ens1370 #(My Creative Sound Blaster PCI128)
/sbin/modprobe snd-mixer-oss
/sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss
/sbin/modprobe bttv #(My Gateway TV tuner card)

And added this to /etc/modules.conf (I have all flavors of USB)

alias usb-controller uhci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 ohci-hcd
alias usb-controller2 ehci-hcd

ran alsaconf (as root)
it added the following to /etc/modules.conf

# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF verion 1.0.0rc2 ---
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-ens1370
alias sound-slot-0 snd-ens1370

Thanks for the reply. I have it auto-loading the modules for my ethernet and the soundcard, but I have to run the configuration tool every time I boot to get the devices to work. Is there a way I can avoid having to run these tools every? Also, I just noticed that my cdrom drive isn't working anymore. It's detected, but nothings happens when I try to access it, and when I try to mount, it says that /dev/scd0 doesn't exist. On top of that, I still can't get usb to work properly. When I try to use my usbmouse, it just goes around the screen erratically.
