I've seen that problem, yes.  There are issues with the module tools
in SuSE 9.1, but that's mainly linked to PCMCIA.  This particular 
problem can be resolved in the following way:

  1. Make sure you have the kernel-source package installed and that 
     both that and the running kernel is at the latest version from 
     SuSE.  Use YOU or fou4s or whatever.
  2. Execute the following set of commands:

        cd /usr/src/linux
        make cloneconfig
        make prepare
        make prepare-all

Evidently there are configuration files which aren't in the kernel
rpms but which get installed with these commands.
