Modprobe problems

I'm trying to insert the modules for my sound card into the kernel.
I'm using RedHat 9 with KDE and a Midiman audiophile 2496 soundcard.
root]# /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss
/lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/sound/snd.o: unresolved symbol register_chrdev_R07a6f6f0
I get a big long list of these unresolved symbols then finally;
/lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/sound/snd.o: insmod snd-pcm-oss failed
Any ideas?

Did you download the .o files? You almost certainly have a version compiled with a different version of libc to the one ou are using. The upshot of which is: you should try and get the source for your soundcard drivers and install them yourself. If you want them in the kernel, you might need to recompile the kernel - see if it has your soundcard available
