No modules detected in installation


I installed the gentoo kernel using genkernel. I've been following the Gentoo Installation Guide exactly, and now I find the following directory doesn't exist:

/lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel

The directory /lib/modules/<kernel version> contains only a directory "nvidia" (I had emerged the nvidia stuff).

Also, during genkernel build I noticed that it did not do the following after "make bzImage", which according to the Guide, should have been done:

"make modules"
"make modules_install"
"Moving bzImage to /boot/kernel-2.4.20-gaming-r3..."
"Building busybox..."
"Creating initrd"
"Build completed successfully"
"Please specify ......when customizing boot loader config files"

Sorry if I'm not precise enough, but I'm a newbie..!!
