error when modprobe(ing) ndiswrapper

I just compile the new 2.6.12 kernel and i'm having trouble when i try to modprobe ndiswrapper in my kernel, i get the following error:

FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.12/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): In valid module format
So i tried to recompile ndiswrapper again and got the same error. I went to ndiswrapper site and they said it has something to do with wrong kernel header. But i don't know how to fix that. However when i did a make for ndiswrapper i get teh following warning:

 WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.12/Modules.symvers is missing; module will have no dependencies and modversions.
if anyone has any insight it would be greatly accepted

There has just been a very interesting thread on the subject of kernel headers, and I see you run 2.6.12 so you're probably concerned:
