Let me ask a stupid question, when you installed your running kernel's 
corrisponding kernel-source package did you untar/bz2 it?  If not then you 
need to do that, cd into kernel-source-2.x.xx and run make oldconfig && make 

After that you should be able, from that directory, do a make-kpkg modules and 
have it work.
