Odd, the directory is valid.  [ant at ANTux-P3 ant]$ ls /lib/modules/
2.4.7-10  2.4.7-10BOOT  2.4.7-10debug  2.4.7-10enterprise  2.4.7-10smp

Makefile shows:
MODDIR := /lib/modules/`grep UTS_RELEASE $(LINUX_HEADERS)/linux/version.h|cut -f 2 -d'"'`/misc
... and that seems correct to me.

uname -r shows: 2.4.7-10 which is correct.
