Question problem in compiling ndiswrapper

I have a very small subnotebook where I installed the UMSDOS mini slackware known as "zipslack". I added to it xorg with xfce and it is very ok: I connect to the lan by a pcmcia network adapter and all is fine, but I would connect wireless. So I downloaded ndiswrapper, but in order to compile it I needed the kernel sources: so I downloaded from a Slackware mirror the kernel source package, but it was 2.4.32 while the zipslack kernel is 2.4.31. I tried to compile anyway and I succeeded. But when I try to modprobe ndiswrapper it complains that the module was compiled for 2.4.32 and the kernel is 2.4.31 and the module is not loaded. Then I recompiled all the kernel with the new sources and copied the bzImage in .boot renaming it as vmlinuz_2_4_32. After that, I modified the linux.bat file for having loadlin booting the new vmlinuz_2_4_32; but after reboot, when I issue the "uname -a" command, it still reports 2.4.31 ! And ndiswrapper module still does not load because of "wrong version".
Where is my error? (this is the first time that I try to compile a kernel) There is any workaround? I will appreciate any suggestion.

I have an ndiswrapper package for Slackware 10.2 (2.4.31 kernel) available for download in my SlackBuilds repository.
