Unresolved symbols with 0.1.2

  Im almost scared to ask anymore questions, but dont know where else to

  SuSE 80, 2.4.18 stock kernel, using the 0.1.2 release of the driver gives
the following error message on "make install_pci":  

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/net/hostap_pci.o
depmod:         hfa384x_events_no_bap1

  Subsequent insmods (WITH hostap.o and hostap_crypt_wep.o already loaded),
gives the same unresolved symbol error:

NoCMOS:~ # insmod hostap_pci no_primary=1
Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/net/hostap_pci.o
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/net/hostap_pci.o: unresolved symbol

The battery for the motherboard on this computer is dead, so the CMOS
settings reset everytime the computer resets, consequently the clock resets
back to 1/1/96, otherwise it works fine.  The "make" command complains about
a clock skew, but otherwise seems to compile fine.  Could this be the
problem?  BTW, the pci card in question IS the new DWL-520 ver E1.  Is it
possible that BECAUSE it has no firmware that it gives this error?
