I have created the directory but it has no modules and fails during the

I've compiled linux-2.6.6 under Fedora-2 without any problems, so I doubt if your difficulties are anything to do with FC-2.

I wasn't clear what you were doing.
The message seemed to be about a different /lib/modules/<version>
to the version you were compiling.

Arrrg, sorry I've misspelled (is this the correct word?) the underscore in: make modules_install
Thanks everybody for your help :)

Do you have an /etc/modprobe.conf (used by 2.6 kernels)?
Did you compile a 2.6 kernel on your machine before you installed FC-2?
Maybe you need to install module-init-tools?
(You can get this from www.kernel.org .)

To compile the kernel I would get linux-2.6.6.tar.bz2
from http://www.kernel.org
un-tar it in /usr/src/linux-2.6.6
go to this directory and say
make oldconfig; make xconfig [or make menuconfig]
Make sure the settings are correct for your machine, and say
make bzImage; make modules
and then (as root)
make modules_install
make install
