[Madlug] compiling new kernel on Centos 5.2

I grabbed the 2.6.26-rc8 kernel source from kernel.org, untared it in
my /usr/src/kernels directory. copied my config file to .config in
the new dir, did make menuconfig and verified my needed settings, did
make, make modules_install, and make install. Verified my menu.lst
entry and rebooted.
The new kernel fails to load modules.dep. followed by other modules
failing to load. On closer examination there is no 2.6.26-rc8
directory in the /lib/modules/ directory.
Here's the rub, when I reboot to the default kernel, the 2.6.26-rc8
directory is there. No errors during the make process, everything
seems to go fine.
What am I missing here? something with the initrd?
Had the same problem earlier with the 2.6.25 stable kernel.
