* modprobe only loads modules found by depmod.
* depmod only finds modules somewhere under /lib/modules/`uname -r`
Copying the module to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc (create the directory first) 
solves that problem.
(Of course, `uname -r` refers to the version of the running kernel. But you can 
write it like that in a bash prompt and it will expand to the right thing.)
