unable to compile new modules in the kernel

Here is the situation: I have a kernel and I want to add some modules. When I do make && make modules_install && make install and copy the vmlinuz and in boot, and then reboot, the new modules compiled into the kernel are not found in /lib/modules/ I've tried the same with kernel 2.6.10 and the same thing happens.
Could anybody tell me what's going on ? I'm using Slackware 10

if you have a running kernel + modules and you only want to add some modules,
you have to do 3 things:

- make xconfig ( only to add modules )
- make modules
- make modules_install

that's all.

btw.: don't do " make clean " or " make mrproper ".
