why won't this module load?

I am trying to get my sound working in slackware 9.1. I am using a ac97 soundcard. I read some where that I may need this module, via82cxxx_audio. here is what happens when I run modprobe
root@marsala:~# modprobe via82cxxx_audio
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o.gz: insmod via82cxxx_audio failed
thsi also happens with the i810_audio module.
