netowrk card help sis900

I have been having trouble with my sis900 neytwork card in slacwkare. I tried to modprobe the sis900, it didnt give me any errors but it didnt load it. so I put in a realtek 8139 network card and tried it too. These are the errors i get with the two cards when trying to do insmod on either of them:. I would much prefer if i could get my sis900 working, it works fine in redhat using the sis900 module.

i put in a realtek 8139 card and tried it. this is the error i got when doing "insmod 8139too":
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o.gz
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o.gz: unresolved symbol mii_ethtool_sset
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o.gz: unresolved symbol mii_link_ok
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o.gz: unresolved symbol mii_ethtool_gset
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o.gz: unresolved symbol mii_nway_restart

the error i got from doing "insmod sis900":
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/sis900.o.gz
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/sis900.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net/sis900.o.gz: 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

is there anyway to fix either of these?
