With the dvb-kernel stuff you are on the bleeding edge.. Many stuff in 
dvb-kernel which have not gone into the mainline kernel yet ..

To fetch the CVS:

cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxtv.org:/cvs/linuxtv co -P dvb-kernel

After fetching,

cd to dvb-kernel

do a

$ makelinks  kernel-sorce directory..

for examaple, i run,

# makelinks /work/kernel/linux-2.6.11.6


After this i manually compile my kernel and install the standard kernel
way of doing things ..

To load the modules it would be just the same... To have a list of
modules i have them at the wiki ..
I don't see the confusing part..

but there is a just sufficient Documentation in the Kernel
Documentation/dvb/bt8xx.txt..
