SubjectInstalling Modules should be in Linux README; (micro)patch
If 2.0.working is coming out soon, the modules system should be being 
used by more people generally, especially cluless ones like myself, so
here's a small suggestion for a patch to the readme (against pre2.0.4
because that's what I've got up to so far)

"make zlilo" if you have lilo installed to suit the kernel makefiles,
but you may want to check your particular lilo setup first.

+ - if you configured any of the parts of the kernel as `modules', you
+ will have to do "make modules" followed by "make modules_install".
+ Read Documentation/modules.txt for more information. For example,
+ an explanation of how to use the modules is included there.
- keep a backup kernel handy in case something goes wrong. This is
especially true for the development releases, since each new release
contains new code which has not been debugged.
