[driverloader] Setting mode to Ad-Hoc causes system to crash or reboot

I'm using Driverloader 1.58 on a Hp compaq nx7000 (Intel PRO/2100) using 
Linux 2.4.24. Everytime that I try to switch to Ad-Hoc mode using 
iwconfig (like this: "iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc"), the system either 
freezes (sometimes the kernel panics, I can see the caps lock led 
blinking) or it reboots immediately, with no log traces whatsoever. After 
several attempts, I managed to take an actual screenshot while in console 
mode (normally I'm under X), using my digital camera, where the details 
of the kernel panic can be seen. To whom should I send this screenshot?

I've also tried upgrading to 1.63, but it doesn't recognise my card ("No 
devices found"). Should I submit the relevant dumpdiag? 


Frustration overflow.
(A)bort, (R)etry, (T)ake down entire building?
