Just to make googling for a solution easier:
Peter van Dijk provided a hint:
Use the supplied drivers for Windows 9x/ME instead of the XP-drivers!
Afterwards, the two modules will load just fine. Before trying the
9x-SYS-file I also increased KSTACK_PAGES to 8 which did not help with
I will decrease this number later, to see if the module built from the
9x-SYS-file also works with the standard values.
