0.7.1 ftp installation: modprobe cannot load/find modules

I am booting the archlinux 0.7.1 image. Archlinux is finding my SATA drives without problems. But it is not able to find my MSI K7N2 onboard network card, which is essential to load the packages. I think it has something to do with the nForce chipset driver for the motherboard. So i tried to load the sata_nv module. Ok, maybe it is the ieee1394 module, but does not matter since I get the same errors for quite a lot of modules.

For example if I enter

modprobe scsi_mod

I get an error message like

insmod: cannot insert 'lib/modules/2.6.15/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_mod.ko' : File exists (-1): File exists
modprobe: failed to load

Other modules work fine, like

modprobe raid1

Is something wrong with my approach or with archlinux?

Best regards
Martin

Re: 0.7.1 ftp installation: modprobe cannot load/find modules

I observed, that there are many modules, which give back this error message. And only a few of them are listed afterwards in lsmod. Is there any solution?

Is this modprobe problem a common problem or only on my system? If it is a problem I want to put it in the bugtracker, since I could not find it there.

Best regards

I don't have the answer to your question, but maybe this will help with your network card :

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
