The scripts /etc/init.d/{kerneld,modutils} have to be able to handle
both 2.0 and 2.2 kernels with kerneld or kmod. You will see they do
this by testing for the presence of /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe which
only exists under 2.2.

Perhaps you have a problem with your /proc filesystem (unless a bug
has been introduced into these scripts). There should be no need to
move/remove the scripts in /etc/init.d.
