[Winmodem on a Dell Inspiron 5100 with Mdk9.2] pctel driver troubles

I would like to installa the pctel driver on my laptop.
The installation seems to work, but when I try to install
the kernel modules 'pctel' and 'ptserial' I found the
following warnings/errors:

--------------------------------------------
[root@idsia pctel-0.9.7-9]# insmod -f pctel
Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/misc/pctel.o
insmod: a module named pctel already exists
---------------------------------------------

and

----------------------------------------------------------
[root@idsia pctel-0.9.7-9]# insmod -f ptserial
Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/misc/ptserial.o
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/misc/ptserial.o: unresolved symbol

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.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Have you some different hint for me?

And it is the problem in the driver or in Mandrake?

Thanks a lot in advance.
