How make modprobe find my kernel module?

I have write a 'hello, world!' module which is in a directory
rather than the kernel source tree. I compiled it by:
make -C /usr/src/linux SUBDIRS=$PWD modules
and installed it by:
make -C /usr/src/linux SUBDIRS=$PWD modules_install
I find it was installed at /lib/modules/2.6.34/extra. Then, I invoked
to load this module, but get a message:
FATAL: Module hello.ko not found.
It seems that my module is not in the modprobe's search path. Is that
true? If so, how can I configure its search path?
