    I don't know, you need to experiment a bit.  See if you can ls
    the files from the boot loader prompt,
Yes, no problems.

see what error messages
    you get, if any, when you load them with the boot loader.
The kernel image loads normally.  If I type 'load green_saver'
the message is:
'don't know how to load module /boot/kernel/green_saver.ko'
I can then proceed to boot the kernel with no modules loaded.
