Sounds reasonable.

According to the manpage, there is no '-k' option for insmod. The
modules is there, but cannot be loaded:

insmod ipx
insmod: can't read 'ipx': No such file or directory

insmod /lib/modules/2.6.16-20-smp/kernel/net/ipx/ipx.ko
insmod: error inserting
'/lib/modules/2.6.16-20-smp/kernel/net/ipx/ipx.ko': -1 Unknown symbol
in module

The symbols not found are make_8023_client and destroy_8023_client.

OK, the problem is that the script uses insmod instead of modprobe. The
ipx module also neds the p8023 module. Try editing the init-script and
do "modprobe ipx" instead of "insmod -k ipx".

And open a bugreport.
