Could it be something with the kernel source? The installer log is saying the problem is most likely that the module is being built with the wrong kernel source. Now i DO still have the old kernel (2.6.8-12) on here, could that be interfering somehow? The log file shows:

-> /proc/version is Linux version 2.6.16.1 (root@Hellfury) (gcc version 3.3.5
(Debian 1:3.3.5-13)) #1 PREEMPT Wed Apr 12 00:17:50 PDT 2006
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.16.1/source'
-> Kernel output path: '/lib/modules/2.6.16.1/build'

Is this supposed to be the correct source path from your build instructions? If this is incorrect, the installer does have an option to change the source path being used. Also, should I remove the old kernel from the system? If you think it's a good idea to do that, then can you point me in the direction of some instructions on how to do so? thanks for the help
