Unhappy RedHat 9 and ALSA driver problems with CMI8738

I followed the ALSA guide @ (sorry, I just aint allowed to post links) to install the alsa drivers on RedHat 9, since my CMI8738 sound card didn't work on linux.
When it came to modprobe'ing the problems started to come in. I just couldn't modprobe. I always got the following errors:

/lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/snd.o: unresolved symbol register_chrdev_R07a6f6f0

/lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/snd.o: insmod snd-cmipci failed

So, I'm asking for help!

PS: This is my first time on linux, and I like it VERY well (except for the ALSA problem)

Forget it, just compiled it myself and everything is just fine.
