modules after kernel make - can't get new kernel finding its modules

More explicit version of earlier request.  I installed 2.4.18-bf2.4 
kernel from CDROM and then completed installation onto machine from 
net.  I want to compile the RAID code into the kernel so I can boot 
from a mirrored disc array.  I download kernel-source2.4.18.  I do:
make menuconfig
make dep
make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --version=custom.1.0

I get deb /usr/src/kernel-image-2.4.18_custom.1.0_i386.deb
dkpg -i kerne ... .deb
it installs,
I set up lilo and boot into it: see the RAID code operating, see the 
lilo label of the new image stanza, get error messages (not in dmesg 
so I'm hazy about the exact wording) saying modules aren't found, no 
network, ... log in from console, lsmod shows no modules, 
/lib/modules/2.4.18 seems to have much less in it than 

What _am_ I doing wrong?  I could go ahead and ignore presence of 
second hard disc and give up on RAID mirorring as it's belt and 
braces, but I can't believe that it's not pretty easy to reconfigure 
a new kernel and modules ... just dammed if I can see what I'm doing 
wrong and reading round very documents (many from the 2.0.x kernel 
days by look of things) and man pages is leaving me none the wiser.

Sorry if this is really, really stupid but I'd love to crack it.
