And yeah Andreas Achtzehn Did speak unto the masses thusly:

This may be entirely unrelated, as I am not very knowledgable in the ways 
of kernel module errors. But I have been getting unresolved symbol errors 
from 2.4.13 while attempting to load both the emu10k1-gp module and gravis 
joystick driver. Mind you, compared with getting a new kernel to play ball 
on mandrake 8.0, this lfs business is pure joy.
I only decide to leap up the kernel tree to 2.4.13 to get some midi I/O 
from my sblive....and I still don't know if I succeeded as I haven't 
decided what apps to install for midi.
Anyway, just thought I should say "you are not alone"
