Where are kernel modules for install?

I'm trying to install using an external usb cdrom. Since there's no usb boot disk I want to copy the needed modules to a floppy, problem is, I can't seem to figure out where they are. I found a file called but I couldn't uncompress it.

Where can I find the boot modules?

The i586/images/README.txt file has an example of producing a modules floppy. In the example, the file is not decompressed.

You might try the cdrom.img or cdrom-changedisk.img, One may contain the support for usb_cdrom drives.

I wonder why they don't have a hdcdrom_usb.img anymore?

Perhaps locating the hdcdrom_usb.img from a Mandrake 10 RC 2 disk somehow would work.

Actually, in the example it says to decompress them. I am trying to find usb-storage.o, usbcore.o, etc. I just wish that if they are going to include the usb boot disk in the documentation, that they would include the image. And now it looks like they didn't include the install kernel modules. What gives?
