[driverloader] problem with Dell/BCM TrueMobile 1450

I have a relatively new Dell Latitude D600 with the TrueMobile 1450 PCI
wireless card. It worked fine under Windows, so I know that the hardware
isn't faulty, but now that I'm running Linux, I can't make it hook up.
Has anyone gotten this card to work with the driverloader?
Here's what I know (or think I know):
--driverloader 1.72 loaded okay into my RHEL ES 3.0 2.4.21-15.EL kernel
--device drivers loaded and the driverloader config page appears to be happy

I did monkey around once with the settings, but it was several weeks ago and
I'm afraid I may have left something partially configured. Is there a good
way to set everything back to the defaults. Particularly, I'm thinking I
had tried to set up the WEP encryption or something along those lines, but I
can't find the config files I modified any more (forgot where they are).
Any pointers would be appreciated. I tried to follow the documentation and
the FAQ, but those steps didn't seem to make any difference for me.
