Question Kernel 2.6.2 on RH8


I just installed and recompiled Kernel 2.6.2. At the end this is the message I get:

Root device is (3, 5)
Boot sector 512 bytes.
Setup is 2538 bytes.
System is 1852 kB
Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
Building modules, stage 2.
CC drivers/net/dummy.mod.o
LD [M] drivers/net/dummy.ko
depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/modules.dep for writing
Warning: you may need to install module-init-tools

INSTALL drivers/net/dummy.ko
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.6.2; fi

Is this part in there a problem: "depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/modules.dep for writing" or can I ignore and write it to grub if so can anyone tell me how to write the new kernel into grub.conf

Thank you in advance.

You may have an outdated module-init-tools. The new 2.6 kernel needs an updated version (at least v 0.9.9 I believe) in order to handle the new modules.
