Help: System broken

Hi Debians,

today I tried to compile and install a new kernel
(kernel source debian package 2.1.125). Compilation
worked fine, then I put the new vmlinux file in my Mac's
system folder (replacing the old vmlinux file there).
Rebooting using BootX failed, leaving me in front of a
entirely dark screen.
Thinking this might be due to the fact that I didn't recompile the
modules I reinstalled the old kernel booted Linux and did a
"make modules" and a "make modules_install". No errors occured.
Now, trying to boot with the new kernel fails again and even worse,
even booting with the old kernel is impossible.
What went wrong? Is there a possibility to reinstall the old modules?

Any help would be very appreciated. I hate reinstalling a new system...
