Firstly, make sure you're using the latest version of
module-init-tools - I think there were some changes around 2.5.74
that meant that versions older than 0.9.11 or so wouldn't work
(Rusty would know for sure, of course ;-)

Secondly, unless you've actually booted into the new kernel, make
sure you point depmod at the right System.map (via depmod -F), since
otherwise it won't have a clue what the modules are on about.

It's a good idea to install the System.map into /boot, as well - on
any Debian system /after/ woody make install in the kernel tree
should do everything you need . . .

And I can't think of anything else without having some coffee ;-)

Good luck!
