Cannot load module toshiba_acpi.ko

Lenny 5.3 i386
laptop: Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D

I want to run fnfxd and toshset to access the function keys for brightness etc.

The programs will not run. The problem seems to be that kernel module
toshiba_acpi will not load:

Output from commands:
# fnfxd
FnFX Daemon v0.3 (c) 2003, 2004 Timo Hoenig <thoenig@nouse.net>

fatal error: Could not open /proc/acpi/toshiba/keys.
Please make sure that your kernel has enabled the Toshiba option in the ACPI
For more information read the documentation and/or

# toshset
required kernel toshiba support not enabled.

Attempt to load module manually:
# modprobe -v toshiba_acpi
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko
FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi
(/lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko): No such device

Module exists:
The stock kernel has been built with the option as a module. Excerpt from

The modules exist on the system.
ls -R /lib | grep toshiba

Is this a hardware issue? Any help gratefully received.
