after hours of spendin time to get my radeon 9600pro work it stopped at a point i can`t handle

maybe someone can help with the following :

[root@rayman ATI]# cd /lib/modules/fglrx
[root@rayman fglrx]# ./
- creating symlink
- recreating module dependency list
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o
- trying a sample load of the kernel module

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o failed
modprobe: insmod fglrx failed
[root@rayman fglrx]#

I had the same problem some time ago... By mistake I had chosen Pentium CPU family in the kernel config although the running kernel was configured for Athlon. Try searching for that kind of mis-configurations.
