the 'alias eth0 driverlader' line should be put in the '/etc/modules.conf' 
file instead of the 'ifcfg-eth0' file. Normally this line should be 
automatically added for you in the '/etc/modules.conf' file.

If you are using a CardBUS (32-bit PCMCIA) wireless adapter, please make sure 
that the 'pcmcia' service is started before the 'network' service on boot. 
You should also make sure that the partition holding the 
'/var/lib/driverloader' directory is mounted before the 'network' service is 

If the previous suggestions did not fix the problem, please try the following 
workaround. Please add the following lines at the end of your '/etc/rc.local' 
file :

modprobe driverloader
ifup eth0
