xfs / reiserfs / file system modules not loading



I'm trying to understand how Anaconda loads some kernel modules.  I'm
trying to add new file systems support to RHEL and CentOS, using
Fedora Core 4 as an example when needed.

Here's what I did:

* install the kernel src rpm
* made the necessary changes to the *config files
* rebuild the src rpm using rpmbuild
* build the kernel rpms using rpmbuild

* extracted the rpm and added the xfs.ko and exportfs.ko  to
modules.cgz  in netstg2.img and stage2.img
* added "xfs: exportfs" to modules.dep in netstg2.img and stage2.img
* added xfs utilities to netsg2.img and stage2.img

During install, I see that Anaconda copies both exportfs.ko and xfs.ko
to /tmp.  This is also noted in the anaconda.log file.

The log file indicates that the xfs.ko and exportfs.ko are being
loaded from modules.cgz.  However, it complains with this error
message:

" failed to insert module (1)
* failed to insert /tmp/xfs.ko

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any help.
