modprobe usbserial problem with minimal linux

Dear all,

I wanted to use the wireless USB Huwai modem EC1260(relience netconnect)
using fedora 6 and through a custom minimal linix.

As far I could able to connect this modem with fedora 6 and
connected with internet using (wvdial,modprobe,usbserial method)

Now, I have a very minimal (custom) linux (core 2.6.18), in which I want to connect through this same method.

for that First I have testes lsusb to check the USB support, it
shows the USB device ID as it was in fedora.

What is not happing is modeprobe for "usbserial",

error I am getting after firing command

"modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12da product=0x140b"

modprobe: module usbserial not found
modprobe: failed to load module usbserial

I have inserted the module usbserial.ko in the driver path of the
OS, using insmod.

I might be anware if I am missing something....

Question: What might be the point why usbserial is not
being attached using modprobe. I want then
some ttyUSB0 in /dev so that i can access USB modem...

Pls help..
