Angry ASUS WiFi@Home, not able to get passed the modprobe.....


XXXX/XXXXX/wifi/Module# modprobe rt2500
modprobe: Can't locate module rt2500
root@MYb0x:/XXXXX/XXXXX/wifi/Module#

This what i get when i try to {modprobe rt2500} i can {make} and then {make install} in the module directory but it will not let me get passed the install instructions at modprobe. same goes for rt2400. i have tried and tried to research it but nothing comes up with something thats eems to help.

i get the same message when i try to modprobe an earlier version with rt2400.

dont really know what is going on with it. tried several thinsg. i have slackware 10.1 w/kernel 2.4.29 if its relevant. im sort of a noob. i have a freind is was helping me with this project but we are both stumped at this point. i decided to go outsourcing for more help. anything posted is greatly appreciated. thanx linux world.

p.s. if you need more info on what is going just post and will reply today. will be watching. thanx again.
