You have a kernel module that was not compiled for the 2.0.7 kernel.  When you 'make config', you need to answer 'y' to the question 'set version information on all modules' (or something to that effect).  

As far as the effect that it will have, I'm not sure.  At the least, I think that the module in question is not being loaded.  I guess the effect would depend on what module that is.  Officially, you should probably correct it.  Unofficially, I had a similar problem for quite some time, and I couldn't see any immediate effects.

Keep me posted.

I don't remember seeing that but I'll revisit the make config
May take a week or two as I have some other system problems.

Thanks
