i'm running redhat linux 7.3 kernel 2.4.18-3; i compiled the latest
tulip.c driver; installed them with

install -m 644 tulip.o /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/
install -m 644 tulip.o /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/net/

now i fear that i've overwritten my old tulip.o because i forgot to
move it, and modprobe can't locate it.  how do i install this
module???  any information would be greatly appreciated

[root@localhost netdrivers]# /sbin/depmod -a
[root@localhost netdrivers]# /sbin/modprobe tulip.o
modprobe: Can't locate module tulip.o
[root@localhost netdrivers]# /sbin/insmod tulip
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o
insmod: a module named tulip already exists
