Compiling kernel modules?

I am trying to build a MythTV system, running Mandrake. (I've tried 9.1 and now back to 9.0).

Under neither Mandrake distribution have I been able to get the driver for the ADM8211 wireless ethernet cards to compile such that they will load at boot time.

depmod -a shows:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.19-35mdkcustom/kernel/drivers/net/8211.o
depmod: eth_type_trans
depmod: __kfree_skb
depmod: alloc_skb
depmod: pci_register_driver
depmod: __generic_copy_from_user
depmod: kmalloc
depmod: pci_enable_device
depmod: pci_read_config_byte
depmod: alloc_etherdev
depmod: cpu_raise_softirq
depmod: free_irq
depmod: unregister_netdev
depmod: __out_of_line_bug
depmod: get_random_bytes
depmod: del_timer
depmod: register_netdev
depmod: pci_release_regions
depmod: kfree
depmod: request_irq
depmod: netif_rx
depmod: pci_unregister_driver
depmod: skb_over_panic
depmod: pci_set_master
depmod: jiffies
depmod: softnet_data
depmod: printk
depmod: add_timer
depmod: __const_udelay
depmod: __generic_copy_to_user
depmod: pci_request_regions

Yet if I boot the machine, and do an insmod 8211.o, it works fine.

The source is available at: download/ADM8211.htm on the website.

What is missing from the link to resolve these dependencies?
