Current versions of ps look for in

      /boot/`uname -r`
      /lib/modules/`uname -r`/

Copy to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ after make
modules_install, remove any old map files from /boot and / and you
don't need any symlink or bootloader tricks.

The 2.5 kernel build asks if you want to install and
.config. If you say yes then the default location for these files in
2.5 is /lib/modules/`uname -r`/{,.config}.
