kernel 2.4.24 with sym53c8xx

I am trying to compile a 2.4.24 kernel with the sym53c8xx SCSI driver. I am have tried compiling it as a module and built in. With both I am getting the error of module not found on the make install step. Any ideas?

In the make install step I am getting the following errors.

warning: kernel is too big for standalone boot from floppy
sh -x ./ 2.4.24 bzImage /usr/src/linux-2.4.24/ ""
+ '[' -x /root/bin/installkernel ']'
+ '[' -x /sbin/installkernel ']'
+ exec /sbin/installkernel 2.4.24 bzImage /usr/src/linux-2.4.24/ ''
No module sym53c8xx found for kernel 2.4.24
mkinitrd failed
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.24/arch/i386/boot'
make: *** [install] Error 2

The relevent scsi section of the kernel .config file looks like this.

# CONFIG_SCSI_NCR53C7xx is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_PAS16 is not set
