Unhappy my modem still wont work

i installed mandrake 10.0 with the LSB option for the 2.4 kernal because my modem wont workwith the 2.6. i downloaded and installed the kernal source for 2.4 as it is not located on any of the install disks. i expected to follow the instructions that came with the modem driver and get it going like i did in mandrake 9.1 steps to install
1. login as ROOT
2. extract the archive into a directory with "tar -zxvf <archivename>.tgz"
3. cd into the directory it created.
4. Type: make clean
5. Type: make 536ep
6. Type: make install-536ep
7. When you restart the computer,Tye: bash 536ep-inst. when i get to step 5 i get a few errors and in step 6 it says cant load 536ep. i dont think i did anything wrong, i made sure i installed the kernel source ver 2.4.25-2mdk.i586.rpm

thanks in advance
