/lib/modules/2.4.20-8smp/kernel/drivers/char/specialix.o: init_module: Input/output error
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8smp/kernel/drivers/char/specialix.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8smp/kernel/drivers/char/specialix.o failed

Is this the output from dmesg and syslog?
