[linux-dvb] How do I install properly (Fedora 5 and nova-t-500)?

I'm trying to get my nova-t-500 working on Fedora 5 (2.6.17 kernel), but the 
card isn't recognised at startup - dmesg returns an error "no version 
for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted." and lists a number of unknown 
symbols. I've searched Google and from what I've read this is caused by some 
conflict between the kernel version and the version of v4l?

What I don't understand is that if I "make load" from the root of the tree I 
downloaded and run dmesg again, the card is found, the firmware is loaded and 
it is "warm" (I assume that means ready?).

My install process was:
1) Installed video4linux from atrpms using yum.
2) Downloaded the bz2 tree from http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb?
3) unpacked the tree
4) cd'ed to the root of the tree
5) make clean, make distclean, make
6) Edited two lines in dvb_net_c to resolve the problem described here: 
7) Same as 5) once more - this time without errors - but some warnings about 
deprecated sleep-timer in some modules
8) make unload
9) make install
10) make load
11) reboot

Am I doing something wrong here? i have searched and tried to read up on the 
procedure but I'm not getting anywhere with this except that I may be 
compiling against a wrong kernel version. But what should I do to compile 
against the right version, then?
