I guess this is caused by the precompiled modules of your distribution.
They don't match your new kernel.

Just try an
rm -rf /lib/modules/2.0.30
and then an
make modules; make modules_install
in the kernel-source directory.


P.S.: I think this is the right place to ask such questions. Indeed, they
are newbie questions, but everyone was a newbie, had his own problems and
was happy to get them solved.

If you put a PC-formatted disk into a Macintosh, you can read it.
If you put a Mac-formatted disk into a Win95-PC, it asks you
whether it should format it.
