I think I have a problem involving the pcmcia modules.

I recently re-compiled the stock kernel on my antique thinkpad 365x 
(potato; 2.2.17 kernel) following these steps (as root):

	cd /usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.17
	make xconfig
	make dep
	make clean
	make bzImage
	cp /usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.17/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /vmlinuz
	cd /usr/src/modules/pcmcia-cs
	make config
	make all
	make install

When I shut down the machine I get the following message:

	warning: /boot/systems.map-2.2.17 does not match kernel data

repeated twice.  When I start up again, this message appears again, 
twice, during bootup.  Also during bootup I get a long list of nearly 
identical messages right after "Calculating module dependencies..." 
ending with the following message:

	depmod: *** Unresolved sympols in lib/modules/2.2.17/pcmcia/fdomain_cs.o

The machine boots OK and seems to work.  I can use the pcmcia modem 
(this message was sent over it).  I find that I can mount a floppy, but 
can't read it.  I enter the command:

	mount /dev/fd0 /floppy -t msdos

I get the response:

	mount: fs type msdos not supported by kernel

But I DID compile MSDOS file system support into the new kernel.  I know 

this because I went back and went through the whole process (listed 
above) again.

Does anyone have some insight on this problem?  Thanks in advance.
