I don't use SUSE, but it's probably something like
/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel
(where $(uname -r) expands to give the version number of the running kernel)

If you (as root, in the directory where you compiled the modules) do 

mkdir /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/ppscsi
cp -p *.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/ppscsi/
depmod -a

Then subsequently calls to 

modprobe epst

should load all the required modules
