No.  Delete the directory (rm -rf /lib/modules/

   J> Or should I just re-compile the kernel?

Yes.  Do

   cd /usr/src/linux
   cp .config ../kernel-config-2.2.16
   make mrproper
   cp ../kernel-config-2.2.16 .config
   make oldconfig
   make dep
   make vmlinux
   make modules
   (as root)
   make modules_install
   cp vmlinux /boot/vmlinux-2.2.16
   cp vmlinux /path/to/your/kernel/folder/under/MacOS/vmlinux-2.2.16
   cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.2.16
   shutdown -r now "Testing new kernel."

Choose vmlinux-2.2.16 from the menu in BootX.
Click on Linux.

That's fine.

If you still have problems, do everything I said but after copying
your configuration (which you should already have done, anyway),
delete the kernel source tree and unpack a fresh one.  Then go
from ``make mrproper''.
