Insert Modules into Kernel


I'm in the process of installing my soundcard right now, and I was wondering how to go about inserting modules into my kernel.

In the installation instructions, I am told :
Code:
Now insert the modules into the kernel.

 modprobe snd-audigyls;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
Here is an example of something I put in:
Code:
[root@localhost root]# /sbin/modprobe snd-audigyls;/sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss;/sbin/modprobe snd-mixer-oss;/sbin/modprobe snd-seq-oss
FATAL: Error inserting snd_audigyls (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-audigyls.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_seq (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/seq/snd-seq.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_seq_midi_event (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/seq/snd-seq-midi-event.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
FATAL: Error inserting snd_seq_oss (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
I also did the commands separately.

The first one got the same results. The next two gave no errors, when I hit enter, the prompt just appeared on the next like like usual.

When I entered the last one I got this:
Code:
# /sbin/modprobe snd-seq-oss
WARNING: Error inserting snd_seq (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/seq/snd-seq.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_seq_midi_event (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/seq/snd-seq-midi-event.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
FATAL: Error inserting snd_seq_oss (/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/kernel/sound/acore/seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
And now I am confused/lost as of what to do. Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

so, what did dmesg say ?

how did you install these drivers ?

Binary install ?
from source ?
Recompile kernel ?

if binary, then maybe you got the package for the wong kerne ?
of if you compiled from source, maybe you compiled it againsed the wrong source code ?

Installed from .tar files.

I unzipped them and ran the ./configure.
I used the instructions here.

I did not find anything in dmesg about the soundcard or ALSA, but I will definitely check again.
