Modules not Compiling

Thanks in advance for any help, this one's got me completely stumped.

I am trying to compile the kernel (2.4.24) so that I can use rivatv. I ran:
make xconfig
make modules
make modules_install
make install
Then, I booted into the new kernel and got a bunch of modprobe errors such as:
modprobe: modprobe: cannot locate module char-module-21
I looked at /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep and the only entry was dummy.o, the dummy net driver. I thought, "Hmm, this is odd, considering the fact that I just spent 20 mins trying to decide what modules to compile into my new kernel." Next I looked in /lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/drivers/ and the only directory was net. So I looked in there and alas, the only file was dummy.o.
I tried depmod -av, but it spit out a lot of errors such as:
xftw starting at /lib/modules/ide lstat on /lib/modules/ide failed

Any advice?
