I installed the om toolchain and compiled the 2.6.28 kernel after some
help of [1] and google with "./build dummy". After i compiled the kernel
i got "dummy/uImage-GTA02.bin" what looks quite good so far.
But how do i extract the compiled modules from the dummy directory to
package them for transfer to the freerunner?
On my pc i just would do "make modules_install" to copy the compiled
modules to the right place. And in the subdirectories of the dir "dummy"
are predominantly *.cmd and *.o files but modules normally end with
*.ko. So i don't know what to to at this point to get the modules out of it.

I hope someone can help me a bit. :)
