Modprobing and insmoding should come with silence so that's not anything to worry about.
Do this in exact order:
Start the KDE.
Open a shell.
Issue the command /etc/init.d/networking start
When it's finished, insmod and modprobe the driver.
When that is done, go to the KDE menu, hit services and click NETWORK START (or start network)
Then open the WICD network manager, do you see any networks?
