I would install modutils in /sbin
I would compile binutils with --prefix=/
to install the modules type make modules_install after make modules
then copy the kernel that should be called vmlinux to /boot
> If I

the path variable diiffines this
if /usr/local/bin;/usr/local/sbin are first they will be found first
