10.2 -> -current : no modules loaded

I upgraded my Slackware 10.2 to -current. I followed the changelog, until I installed everything.
Problem now is: my sound and internet connection do not work anymore. I use the onboard functions of an NVidia NForce2 for both. When I do a modprobe:

Module Size Used by Tainted:P
nvidia 3784012 6

I did install the kernel-ide and kernel-modules packages. Is that wrong?

Did you run 'lilo'? Are you sure that the new kernel was booted? You can see the running kernel version with 'uname -r'.

I've read it in the UPGRADE.TXT, I've said to myself: "Do not forget to run Lilo", and yet that was indeed the problem. Thanks a lot Daniel.
