do not top post.
when you run "make && make install", it will create modules and put
them in /lib/modules/your_kernel_version ...
you can see the list of all modules with "modprobe -l" ... you can run
"modprobe cx2388" right after running "make && make install" ... I
think that this module is one of yours.
