DriverLoader is known to work well on SuSE 9.1 with a wireless card based on 
the 2100 Intel chipset. However, many kernels of SuSE 9.1 ship with an 
experimental open source driver for this wireless card. To prevent a conflict 
between this open source driver and DriverLoader, please add the following 
line in your '/etc/hotplug/blacklist' file :


Then, reboot your computer.
