All kernel modules gone?

Hi, I just installed Debian Linux a day ago, and it seemed to work fine (after a few hours of work), but when I turned it off it was working fine.

But today I turned it on and... No kernel modules load! Nothing! X can't start because module nvidia doesn't load. When I booted, I got messages that said "FATAL: module ... not found" for several modules.

When I tried running the nVidia setup again, it failed to build the module, with errors like "nvidia: unknown symbol agp_bind_memory".

What do I do?

Never mind, when I ran depmod -a and reloaded the modules everything works fine
