megaraid.ko needs unknown symbol doing install_modules on 2.6.2


I need some help. I am trying to build the 2.6.2 kernel. When i execute "make" it completes with no error. However, "make modules_install" will complete with an error. Here is the condensed output i see:

[root@hostname linux-2.6.2]# make modules_install
INSTALL drivers/scsi/3w-xxxx.ko
INSTALL drivers/scsi/53c700.ko
INSTALL drivers/serial/8250.ko
INSTALL drivers/serial/8250_pci.ko
INSTALL drivers/serial/8250_pnp.ko
INSTALL drivers/scsi/a100u2w.ko
INSTALL drivers/scsi/aacraid/aacraid.ko
<<output snipped for brevity>>
INSTALL drivers/usb/host/uhci-hcd.ko
INSTALL drivers/scsi/ultrastor.ko
INSTALL drivers/usb/core/usbcore.ko
INSTALL drivers/usb/class/usblp.ko
INSTALL drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko
INSTALL drivers/scsi/wd7000.ko
INSTALL fs/xfs/xfs.ko
INSTALL drivers/usb/input/xpad.ko
INSTALL lib/zlib_inflate/zlib_inflate.ko
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.6.2; fi
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.2/kernel/drivers/scsi/megaraid.ko needs unknown symbol mega_create_proc_entry
[root@hostname linux-2.6.2]#

Googling "mega_create_proc_entry "unknown symbol" turns up nothing. Since i was thinking this message is a compiler warning and not an error, i installed the resultant 2.6 kernel. However, the machine freezes half way through the LILO progress bar.

Mandrake 9.2, KDE 3.2, PIII 700, 384 MB RAM, . I am a newbie (as if you couldn't tell).

Oh yeah, one more thing, here is the gcc version i have:

[root@hostname linux-2.6.2]# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.3.1 (Mandrake Linux 9.2 3.3.1-2mdk)

Thanks in advance,
