Debian testing kernel for use with pwcx.o (webcam) module.

I have a Logitech QuickCam 4000 Pro and a Debian sarge system on an
Athlon 1100 with the 2.4.23-1-386 kernel.  I've tried to use the pwcx
module from http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/ by copying
to /lib/modules/2.4.23-1-386/kernel/drivers/usb/
but I got the following:

# update-modules 
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols
in /lib/modules/2.4.23-1-386/kernel/drivers/usb/pwcx.o

# modprobe pwcx
/lib/modules/2.4.23-1-386/kernel/drivers/usb/pwcx.o: kernel-module
version mismatch
        /lib/modules/2.4.23-1-386/kernel/drivers/usb/pwcx.o was compiled
for kernel version 2.4.23
        while this kernel is version 2.4.23-1-386.
insmod /lib/modules/2.4.23-1-386/kernel/drivers/usb/pwcx.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.23-1-386/kernel/drivers/usb/pwcx.o: insmod pwcx failed

According to the module's FAQ
(http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/faq.html#L10) this means "you have a
kernel with version information on module symbols turned on. Recompile
and/or install a kernel with this option turned off. And yes, that is
the only way."

I would prefer not to dabble in recompiling my kernel yet since I have
no experience of this.  Is there a suitable kernel package available?
