Sure - I'm trying it on Mandrake 9.1

I've already had fun with the module_init_tools from

Basically after doing the ./configure --prefix=/ && make moveold, I was left 
with a bunch of dangling symlinks in /sbin

I've since grabed the src.rpm from here:
and that seems to be behaving a bit more (although I haven't rebooted yet :)

Everything else is from a standard Mandrake 9.1 install, so I'm using gcc 
3.2.2 and associated gubbins.
