I leave the old kernel alone.

make modules
make modules_install

cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/mick

edit lilo and add new image 'mick'
run /sbin/lilo

it should add both 'Linux' and 'mick', and on minw Win98 as 'w'

This way at boot you can select the old kernel in case you built a bad one.

ps you 'mv' ed your modules to 'old'. So thats why you can't find them.
