I suspect that you were already running 2.0.29 before you built your
custom one.  It is possible that there were some modules in the old kernel
that were not included in your custom kernel.  

Try this and see if it corrects the problem:

mv /lib/modules/2.0.29 /lib/modules/2.0.29-old

then immediately reinstall the kernel .deb that you built and reboot.
