If your module is replacing a driver already in the kernel tree then it
should go in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/updates/
If it's a new driver not present in the kernel then it should go in
and then run 'depmod -a'
BTW, you should use modprobe and modprobe -r to load and unload modules
rather than insmod as modprobe understands module dependencies whereas
