A few questions regarding Modular Kernels

I am presently downloading the kernel sources from tsx-11.mit.edu for
version 2.1.23 as per a suggestion on the list from L. Torvalds.

It occurred to me that to test this kernel I'm going to have to install a
new set of modules (I guess 2.1.13, as its the latest file available
there). My question has to do with the 'test' installation of 2.1.23:
will the new modules I install work with the existing 2.0.18 kernel I
presently have running? or will I be forced to rebuild the kernel/module
system each time I want to fall back to a more stable configuration?

Thanks in advance-
