modules not loading after kernel install

i just upgraded from 2.4.22 to 2.6.2 on my slack 9.1 laptop. i noticed this same thing when i upgraded to 2.6.0 on my desktop last week, but didnt think anything of it at the time.
why, after i compile a kernel and choose to load some things as modules, do none of my modules start ? when i did make modules it had a ton of listings, but when i start and notice my network doesnt work, i do lsmod, and it shows that there are no modules loaded.
why ?!?!

btw - i checked the /lib/modules/2.6.2 dir, and the modules for my network card and sound are there, so if nothing else, those two should be loading...

You'll notice that the modules have the extension ".ko". This is so you don't confuse them with 2.4 kernel modules. You need a different set of module utilities. I'm not ure what they're called in slack. In Debian the OLD ones are called "modutils" and the new ones are called "module-init-tools". You may have to rerun depmod using the newer version of said app from the module-init-tools package.
