Angry USB module wont load!!

Help Please
I have RH 9 and am trying to sort my USB controller.
I have onboard USB 1.1 and it is working fine in Windows XP however i cannot get it to load in linux.
I have tried modprobe with both UHCI and OHCI and with both i get the following error message.

/lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-uhci.o: init_module: No such device
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/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-uhci.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-uhci.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-uhci.o: insmod usb-uhci failed

modprobe works fine on UHC

Does this mean that my USB controller is not compatible with RH?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try disabling USB legacy support in your BIOS. I have seen similar problems before where this did the trick.
