How to rebuild/reinstall sound modules after kernel recompile?

Well, I recompiled my kernel (stock SuSE kernal 2.4.18 from kernel-source rpm) for various reason I won't borther to detail here.
Everything is fine except sound.

When alsa tries to start I get the following error:

jw:~ # rcalsasound start
Starting sound driver: cs4236modprobe: Can't locate module snd-cs4236
Ok, so digging around shows that the following are no longer existant: failed


According to RPM, they are owned by k_deflt-2.4.18-58

Which to me would indicate that I had left some step out of the re-compiling process.

Based on other things I saw I the list I let the following run while I went to lunch:

make cloneconfig
make dep
make clean && make bzImage && make dep clean bzImage && make modules && make bzlilo && make modules_install

Ran lilo, rebooted, everythign as expected except the sound drivers.

Now, actually, the entire sound directory is missing:

jw@jw:~> ls /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/
abi arch drivers fs net

So what did I skip? What do I have to do to build && install the sound modules?
