Ah, I didn't realize you weren't doing things The Debian Way. In this case
it's extra important that you remember to *delete* or otherwise move the
/lib/modules directory that's created when you compile your kernel. If you
don't you *may* end up not having the new modules put into the directory.
This happened to me several times when I was trying to get my wireless
card working--without deleting the directory the old drivers weren't
overwritten when I compiled a new kernel.

Hope that helps,
