I believe this is the case. Not all modutils know how to gunzip.
I've had trouble with Mandrake and the drivers not modifying the correct file in the right way for years now. I've just been adding aliases to modules.conf, but adding the module name to /etc/modules works as well.
That was one of the reasons I stopped using Mandrake...
