I may have missed it, do you have the module-init-tools package
installed? It is required for kernels 2.6.
>From apt-cache show module-init-tools
This package contains a set of programs for loading, inserting, and

serves the same function that the "modutils" package serves for Linux
Will the information superhighway have any rest stops?
