I have this error message popping up in my /var/log/messages file:

modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/ No such file or directory

My OS is CentOS 5.5 with my own compiled kernel, it's working fine so I know it's not causing any problems so I was wondering if it was possible to disable this message somehow?

Try disabling the module by adding the following to /etc/modprobe.conf:

alias rt30 off
