Were there any errors when you ran make or did that go cleanly?

I'm still trying to figure out how I can create this file:
Code:
WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.13/Module.symvers
is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

This is probably more explanation than you were looking for, but basically the Module.symvers file is created during the kernel compilation process. In this case since it is a warning, and not a fatal error, I'm assuming that this file is NOT an absolute requirement and it should be possible to live without it.
