MadWiFi for WG311T - RedHat 9

I've been trying to install this, and I keep running into one error after another.

Now, i'm getting a weird install error. Here's what was written when I used the > operator to record to a text file:

for i in ./ath_hal ath_rate/sample ./net80211 ./ath; do \
	make -C $i install || exit 1; \
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/madwifi/ath_hal'
test -d //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net || mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
strip -S ath_hal.o
cp ath_hal.o //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/madwifi/ath_hal'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/madwifi/ath_rate/sample'
test -d //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net || mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
strip -S ath_rate_sample.o
cp ath_rate_sample.o //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/madwifi/ath_rate/sample'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/madwifi/net80211'
test -d //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net || mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
for i in wlan.o wlan_wep.o wlan_tkip.o wlan_ccmp.o wlan_acl.o wlan_xauth.o; do \
	f=`basename $i .o`; \
	strip -S $f.o; \
	cp $f.o //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net; \
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/madwifi/net80211'
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/madwifi/ath'
test -d //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net || mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
cp ath_pci.o //lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/net
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/madwifi/ath'
No problems so far. But after this, depmod reports missing symbols in every .o old file. Here is an example:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/net/net/wlan_ccmp.o
depmod:         crypto_alloc_tfm
depmod:         skb_under_panic
depmod:         crypto_cipher_setkey
depmod:         ___pskb_trim
depmod:         skb_over_panic
depmod:         crypto_free_tfm
depmod:         mem_map
depmod:         crypto_cipher_encrypt
The tutorial I am reading online says once it has been built, run modprobe. Now, this is the first time I've gotten these errors. Before, it built fine, but the module couldn't be found. I ran a make clean, then a make, then a make install. All of these errors come from the make install. Obviously, the module probe won't work, which is necessary for me to connect to the network. Does anybody have any ideas?
