That's a FAQ!
make modules compiles the modules
make modules_install copies the modules to /lib/modules/$(uname -r)

The two things are completely different.
insmod/modprobe is a tool for loading modules dynamically into a running
kernel and modules_install is a makefile-target, user for copying the
precompiled modules to a certain destination.

Please don't post such questions in here, check for a local linux
newsgroup or discussionforum.
