contivity vpn client slackware 12.1

I followed a guide found on the ubuntu forums,

I am trying to install the contivity vpn client on slackware 12.1 and this is proving to be quite difficult. I have gotten it to compile and but at the end it says

Starting Netlock services: insmod: error inserting '/etc/netlock/mishim.o': -1 Invalid module format

I thought it might work since I am using the same kernel as they are talking about on the ubuntu forums. Is it possible to do this with slackware? Thanks. I really do not want to have to use ubuntu in order to connect to my work vpn...

Anyone? Is it possible to sort of decompile the existing kernel module (mishim.o) and recompile it with the correct version of gcc or something?
