kmod: failed to exec modprobe?

In my opinion, this is not an LFS issue - as not everybody uses modules at
all - and those that do, not everybody uses kmod to load them.  All the
information necessary to start using kmod is in the kernel documentation as
kmod.txt.

Oh... I found out the problem: kmod reads the location of modprobe from
/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe (I thought), and it tells /sbin/modprobe, while
it's really in /usr/modprobe. So in the next LFS shoud be menthione either
- echo "/usr//sbin/modprobe" > /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe  (this should
happen everytime at boot time, before any other progs
or
cd /sbin && ln -s ../usr/sbin/modprobe modprobe (needs to be done once, thus
is way simpler!)
for the others check the kernel Documentation
(modules.txt, networking/net-modules.txt)
modules said I shouls alias net-pf- 3,4 and 6 to "off", I did so with 5&9
too, it still doesn't work...
