Upgrade your modutils to the one from Fedora Core 2. It supports the
2.6 modules as well as 2.4 so you are covered in either case. FC3 now
uses module-init-tools which only works with 2.6. You should be able to
just run a 'make install' which will use /sbin/installkernel to setup
the proper files in /boot.

The Fedora kernel RPMS use this kind of statement to add the entries to
grub:

[ -x /sbin/new-kernel-pkg ] && /sbin/new-kernel-pkg --package kernel --
mkinitrd --depmod --install 2.6.10-1.741_FC3


Should work for you as well with no issues.
