I've finally find something in the Debian documentation, so Debian already 
has it's solution for creating seperate module packages. Each module will 
have it's own package which you simply install with dpkg -i after the kernel 
image. For those who are interested about this I've found the documentation 


I was also wondering is that allright to have the megaraid driver as a 
kernel loadable module ? Currently I use it as compiled into the kernel. Are 
there no special issues in using the megaraid driver as loadable module ?
