Kernel packages are called kernel-image on Debian and linux-image on
Ubuntu. I didn't know about module-assistant, but from your problem, I'm
guessing it's a Debian tool that hasn't been adjusted for Ubuntu. Here's
what you can do instead:
1) Open a Root Terminal.
2) Type the following lines exactly:

apt-get update
apt-get install kernel-package linux-headers-2.6.11-1-686
cd /usr/src
rm -r modules
tar xjf sl-modem.tar.bz2
cd linux-headers-2.6.11-1-686
rm scripts/kconfig/*.o
make-kpkg --append-to-version -1-686 modules_image
dpkg -i ../sl-modem*.deb
