Before doing make modules_install, move the old modules out of the way first.

But the biggest problem is that I don't know how to get my printer, soundcard and netwokcars and the other things to work.
Do I have to do something more after make modules_install ???

After compiling, don't forget to move the generated kernel
(/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage) to /boot/vmlinuz.new
and add lines in /etc/lilo.conf corresponding to your new kernel. Then run lilo to take into account the fact you changed your kernel.
You should then reboot (keep a backup floppy to be able to boot
in case of problems ;-)
Then, to add modules, use the insmod command.
For example, to add your scsi card:
insmod /lib/modules/2.1.117/ncr53c8xx.o
Most of the time the modules will be autmoatically loaded if you made a depmod -a to calculate all the dependencies between them...

So To find my scsi card and my network card I must always use insmod?? I can't get it to work by it self??
And how about the soundcard??? Even if I load the module sound.o it doesn't work.
