Boot Error

I just recently recompiled my kernel and took out the sound support and a couple of other things.  Now, on bootup, I see a list of things that say  

/lib/modules/2.0.32/misc/something.o :unresolved symbols

What does this mean and how do I fix it?  Is the a modules dependency command that I need to make?

I am running Redhat 5, linux 2.0.32.

I think you can just ignore the message because Linux will load all modules that exist ini /lib/modules/<kernel version> when booting. If you don't want to see this message, just delete the <something.o> file in the directory.
Hope this can help you...

Shouldn't make clean take care of this?  I have quite a few errors if I don't delete the /lib/modules/2.0.32 and when I recompile I sometimes get errors that might be related to this.  I s the answer then that I need to delete the directory every time I recompile?

Standard fault that not clean up the /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/ directory before 'make modules_install'

If you don't, old kernel modules will mess with the new kernels references...

This is ofcource if you just recompiled the old kernel.
