Simply changing sorting method to sort by file name below each kernel
modules dir, without paths, would suffice. The same adding an ignore
option for /etc/modules.conf. May be I will write him about this ...
some day.

I understand. 

Unless a standard location exists for module diversions, I will try 
not to add new dirs, but installing the ftape modules with the same 
structure as the 2.4 kernels do if compiled for 2.4 kernels. 
That way every .o.old kernel will be always after their .o counterpart 
and there will be no bad interactions.
