Yep, something like that. FC2's kernel-source package  (called 
kernel-sourcecode sometime after kernel-2.6.5) is borked. It does not 
AFAIK allow individual module builds, and the default Makefile does not 
seem to install to a usable area. So.... I did this:
o removed "custom" from the EXTRAVERSION line of Makefile
o make modules
o make modules_install
o depmod -e -F /boot/`uname -r`

I now have a usable module:
[root_at_uhura root]# modinfo coda
author:         Peter J. Braam <>
license:        GPL
vermagic:       2.6.8-1.521 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-3.3

Let the fun begun!
