Modem installation problem, need fast help

I am trying to install my Intel536EP V92 internal modem on Slackware 10.0 and my kernel version is 2.4.26.
I downloaded the file Intel536ep-4.69.1.tgz from intel site and extracted it to a directory in my home folder.
It said it must work for following versions :
debian_version (including Corel)
Unknown distributions install modules and utilities but
will not install boot scripts!.

Then I followed the instructions in Readme file. This is what happend :

root@Immortal:~/INTEL/intel-536EP- make clean
cd coredrv; make clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/INTEL/intel-536EP-'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/INTEL/intel-536EP-'
rm -f *.o *.ko
root@Immortal:~/INTEL/intel-536EP- make 536
Module precompile check
Current running kernel is: 2.4.26
/lib/modules... autoconf.h exists
diff: /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h: No such file or directory
autoconf.h matches running kernel
diff: /boot/vmlinuz.version.h: No such file or directory
version.h matches running kernel
uname -r|grep "2.6" && \
cd coredrv && make 536core_26 && \
cp Intel536.ko .. && cd .. && \
strip --strip-debug Intel536.ko && \
exit; \
ls Intel536.ko >/dev/null 2>&1 || uname -r | grep "2.6" && echo "Failed to build driver" && exit; \
if [ ]; then \
else \
cd coredrv; make TARGET=TARGET_SELAH KERNEL_INCLUDES=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include \
fi ; \
cp Intel536.o .. ; \
if [ -a /boot/vmlinuz.version.h ]; then \
cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux/version.h;\

unknown distribution. no boot scripts installed

And then I tried the procedure suggested in Readme file :

root@Immortal:~/INTEL/intel-536EP- insmod -f Intel536.o
Intel536.o: unresolved symbol put_tty_driver
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.

What is wrong here? and how can I resolve this problem and install my modem.

what does it say if you try to modprobe it. it may need a symbol from another module.
