kerneld & binfmt_aout

I have the following problem: I compiled binfmt_aout as a module (and
did "depmod -a"). But when I try to run an aout binary, kerneld does
not load the binfmt_aout.o module automagically. The other modules,
such as cdrom.o, isofs.o, ide-cd.o are loaded by kerneld very well.

vvv:~$ /usr/local/bin/qqq
bash: /usr/local/bin/qqq: cannot execute binary file
vvv:~$ strace /usr/local/bin/qqq
execve("/usr/local/bin/qqq", ["/usr/local/bin/qqq"], [/* 32 vars */]) = 0
strace: exec: Exec format error
vvv:~$ su -c "/sbin/modprobe binfmt_aout"
vvv:~$ /usr/local/bin/qqq
[ Ok ]

I use linux-2.1.66, modutils-2.1.55.

Best regards, -- Vladimir.

How do I type "for i in *.dvi do xdvi i done" in a GUI?
