What does 'uname -r' give you?  If it doesn't say '2.2.16-21.beo', then
you need modify your lilo.conf to make sure you boot the 2.2.16-21.beo
kernel (see man lilo.conf for more info), then run /sbin/lilo to make
sure your changes take affect, then reboot.

Also, make sure /lib/modules/2.2.16-21.beo/misc/bproc.o exists, and make
sure that after you edit your conf.modules file that you run depmod -a.

(This assumes you're using a single processor box, if its dual
processor, all mentions of 2.2.16-21.beo need to be replaced with
