First, thanks to everyone who helped.. 
   Everything is working fine now.  Turns out that in Mandrake, the
IPaliasing module comes in the kernal already.  So all I needed to do
was set it up using the LinuxDocs, Minus the Loading of the module and
setting up the loopback.  Unfortunately though, all of this information
has dissapeared from my Ifconfig, so I'm going to have to do it again.
I think my boss went in and deleted it or something.  Very strange
  again, thanks!

In your above example, there is a space between your ` and the /ip...

If that's there on your command line, insmod is looking at the directory
itself, which doesn't have an elf header.

On Mandrake, you should be able to simply insmod ip_alias.o and the
module will be magically found (i think by insmod) and loaded.

If it's a stock 8.1 installation on a uniprocessor system, there is only
one kernel installed, and you could always cd to that directory and
from there as well...
