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 
the XP-SYS-file.

options         KSTACK_PAGES=8

I will decrease this number later, to see if the module built from the 
9x-SYS-file also works with the standard values.
