Custom kernel does not have module support for PCI card

Hi guys, I have a problem

I am running Fedora 8 (Stuck with this version because of driver limitations!) with a Pentek data aquisition card in a custom kernel. The system was functional but spontaniously stopped working today. I am getting the following when I use the command to turn on the Pentek card:

"Fatal Error: kernel does not have module support"

I enabled module support in the .config and I can see that the correct modules are installed. Also, as mentioned before,the same system was previously working. At this point, I am unsure how to proceed and I need help :P

Not sure if this is relevant but when I boot up the computer, I also see the following:
"PCI: device 0000:03:1b.0 has unknown header type 6f, ignoring."
This message was not present before the problem presented.

Thank you in advance!

Could the PCI device have finally stopped working?
