it's pretty easy to run a custom kernel on Linode -- that's what i do
with mine at least.

... prob not really an answer in your mind :-) but a possibility.

personally i'm curious why it's an issue at all -- if /lib/ is a
symlink, why can't modules in /usr/lib/ be found?  doesn't kmod follow
symlinks? ... all my stuff is working fine, but now i'm compelled to
seek the answer.
