[Netkit.users] modules not loaded error

I find that kernel modules fail to load when I specify a relative path to
the kernel. For example:

$ vstart -k mydir/netkit-kernel-i386-K2.8/netkit-kernel

The UML machine starts up but gives this error:

Modules directory not mounted.
Loading kernel modules...FATAL: Could not load
/lib/modules/ No such file or directory
Setting kernel variables (/etc/sysctl.conf)...done.
Setting up networking....
Configuring network interfaces...modprobe: FATAL: Could not load
/lib/modules/ No such file or directory

If I use an absolute path instead:

$ vstart -k /home/ashish/mydir/netkit-kernel-i386-K2.8/netkit-kernel

then it correctly loads the modules. Fine, but now I'm trying to set the
kernel path within a lab.conf file. I have:


and the modules are not loaded. I've tried adding a slash and a slash dot to
the beginning of the path, but get the same results. Is ther any way to make
this work?

Thank you.
