check this link
http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/debian-linux-help/45069-cant-get-nistnet-running.html

some site also mentioned to do
insmod nistnet.ko
or
insmod /pathto/nistnet.ko
instead of running the script.

From your Q and your first link, you do not have the rtc module (real time clock, /dev/rtc). When you configured your new (actually, rather old) kernel, what did you say for Generic /dev/rtc emulation (GEN_RTC) under Character devices?
The FATAL: error is from modprobe trying to insmod rtc. It seems Nistnet expects rtc to be built as a module - in "make xconfig" did you tick it? that builds it permanently into the cernel. You need to dot it (click on box till dot appears).
