/lib/modules/2.4.26-pa6-r1-livecd64/modules.dep is emtpy on the hppa 2004.2 LiveCDs.
Thus you can't load 64 bit modules, like the tulip driver which is pretty common to get an hp workstation running.

My work around for this was to copy all of the files from /lib/modules/2.4.26-pa6-r1-livecd64 into another partition, mount that partition at /lib/modules/2.4.26-pa6-r1-livecd64, and run depmod.

-----

An easier way is to use insmod to load the modules.
