Unhappy mkinitrd no modules available for kernel - rhel5

I am trying to run mkinitrd on RHEL5. If I use this command mkinitrd -v -f /boot/newinitrd.img $(uname -r) it works, if I use mkinitrd -v -f /boot/newinitrd.img 2.6.18-262.e15 it returns no modules available for kernel???? why can't I use the 2.6.18-262.e15 to get it to work?

details below
uname -r returns 2.6.18-262.e15
ls -l /lib/modules/ returns 2.6.18-262.e15
