I am having a hell of a time with this same problem...

Let me try and communicate to you my problem. hehe...

This is taken from README_26.txt:
________________________________________________

STEP 3:

Install module-init-tools. This will replace depmod
[/sbin/depmod] and other tools.

tar -zxvf module-init-tools-3.0.tar.gz
cd module-init-tools-3.0
./configure --prefix=/
make
make install
./generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf

STEP 4:

Install modutils-2.4.21-23.src.rpm. You may get warnings
about user rusty and group rusty not existing. Also, yes,
you'll have to force the install. If you don't do these steps
for both Redhat 9 and Redhat 8, you'll have problems with the
make modules_install.

rpm -i modutils-2.4.21-23.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/modutils.spec
rpm -Fi /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/modutils-2.4.21-23.i386.rpm
________________________________________________

So I installed module-init-tools-3.1-pre5 from kernel.org. I generated /etc/modprobe.conf. I then installed modutils-2.4.27-1.i386.rpm which was also from kernel.org (except in src rpm format).

I proceeded to make my config and bzImage without problem. I then ran into errors when trying to make my modules (or maybe it was install). I received the infamous "make: *** [modules]" error. I then copied "depmod" from the module-init-tools source folder and put in place of the one installed by the modutils rpm. I was able to finish compiling/installing all my modules.

I then ran through the remainder of what I found concerning the init scripts, fstab, etc and rebooted. I end up with these errors:
________________________________________________
Loading scsi_mod.ko module
insmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
ERROR: /bin/insmod exited abnormally!

Loading ips.ko module
insmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
ERROR: /bin/insmod exited abnormally!

Loading aic7xxx.ko module
insmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
ERROR: /bin/insmod exited abnormally!

Please append a correct "root=" boot option.
VFS: Cannot open root device "sda3" or unknown-block(0,0)
VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
________________________________________________

I've been battling this for a day or so now and am getting very frustrated with it. Can anyone help?

Thanks...

The third major version of module-init-tools (referenced in running "make modules_install" in the first place) seems to work where as the latest version of modutils seems to produce the same message as its predecessor versions.
