kernels compiled with 4K stacks are known to be a problem with DriverLoader. 
However, this problem is dependent on the the Windows driver used with 
DriverLoader. 4K stacks is enough for some Windows drivers with DriverLoader 
and others, such as the Intel Centrino 2100 and 2200BG Windows drivers 
require the 8K stacks or else it will not work at all.

If you experience a crash with DriverLoader and you have a 4K stacks kernel, 
please try with a 8K stacks kernel first and with different versions of the 
Windows XP driver before reporting a problem.

It is possible however that the script failed to detect a wireless card 
because of a stack overflow so please compile a kernel with 8K stacks to see 
if there is a difference. If it still doesn't work with a 8K stacks kernel, 
please send at support at linuxant.com the output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the 
following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('driverloaderdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
