Thanks a lot Jim,

I tried, and it still doesn't work.

*Then* I did my homework, and I seem to understand that modprobe is used
with kernels 2.5 and 2.6?

I'm still using kernel 2.4.22. I've built with nALFS from profile 3, so it
should be quite standard. The trouble began (I think) when I tried to tweak
my kernel config to get DMA on my hard disk. It worked, but I must have
broken something else...

I must admit that, having built LFS 3 and LFS 4 in the past, I've not read
book 5 in details. But I can't find anything new about modules there. Also,
serial.o seems to be in the right place:

root at maske 18:01:54> find /usr -name serial.o
