Unhappy Webcam and ovcamchip

Hi guys! I have this problem...I installed my Philips camera with no problems on my red hat 9. Yesterday i updated the kernel and lots of things with apt-get dist-upgrade...the new kernel is 2.4.20-20.1.caps.rh90, everything works like before except for the webcam: I cannot load the ovcamchip module anymore...with insmod it says that the module is compiled for a different kernel (which is actually true!), but if I try to compile it again for the new kernel (from the ov511 driver), it gives me tons of errors...somebody PLEASE HELP ME!
