[driverloader] eth0 disabled after start up (Suse 9, DWL-G650+)

I have had the same problem for several months now also, although both the
card and kernel version are different. I run a Linksys WPC54g card with
kernel 2.4.22-1.2174 (Fedora Core 1). I first began seeing the problem when
I moved to FC 1 from RH9. I've been living with a workaround. It seems that
the trick is to get driverloader to reinitialize (I either eject and insert
the card also, or issue: cardctl suspend/cardctl resume). When I first
experienced the problem, I sent all of the dldrdiag info to the Linuxant
folks, and they pointed me in the direction of the kernel. I suspect it's
something with card services and timing. I run on a very old Gateway Solo
I'm pretty much out of ideas, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
