I am using CentOS 4.1

Does anyone know where the /modules directoy is?? I cannot find it anywhere. How is the kernel loading modules without it!? Any help is greatly appreciated.

What on earth is "/modules"? Some old oddity from the dark ages?

Kernel modules are loaded from [b]/lib/modules/`uname -r`[/b] these days, for example from [b]/lib/modules/2.6.9-11.EL[/b] in CentOS 4.1.
[code]man modprobe[/code]will tell you more. Modules are optionally configured in [b]/etc/modprobe.conf[/b]
