That's what is also described on the wiki page but there is no modules
tar.gz file. I searched the whole linux-2.6 directory with all subdirs
without luck.

I did a "./build dummy" again and i see that at some point it shows
"Building modules, stage 2.". And after that all modules are listed with
extension *.ko which is correct. After i took a closer look i can see
that within dummy and all these other files are the wanted *.ko files.
But it doesn't exist any archive with all of them in it. Now i could
search for every *.ko file and extract it out of dummy, but i don't
think this is normal. :/

Could it be that i have to issue some command which produces the modules
tar.gz file?
