Ahh... but notice your kernel is 2.4.18-newpmac

You need to adjust the kernel makefile and add the EXTRAVERSION


and then run 'make config' and just be sure that things like SMP are off
(or you'll have more missing symbols). 
Then run 'make dep'

Then edit the Makefile for the module and make sure that...

KERNEL_SRC = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/build

is changed to point to the kernel source tree.

Then you should be in good shape. Rebuild the module.
