How to enable modules

I recently compiled a new 2.6.1 kernel. I don't think the modules are loading. I have installed the module init tools 0.9.9, but my older kernel(2.4) is still loading modules.
So how do I activate the new module init tools?

module-init-tools are backwards compatible. I run module-init-tools 0.9.15 and my system works fine with both kernels 2.4.24 and 2.6.1.
