Check the top of the Makefile and you should see something like:
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 25
EXTRAVERSION = -pre4
Which would put the modules in /lib/modules/2.4.25-pre4 if this is
the same as ``uname -r'' then your current modules will be overwritten.
You can modify the EXTRAVERSION to have a different name and rebuild.
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
