the kernel oops message was generated while running in a function of the 
DriverLoader module so the problem is more likely to be DriverLoader.

If you are not already using the 3.40.x.x version of the Windows XP driver, 
please try to upgrade to a 3.40.x.x version of this Windows driver. You can 
obtain a 3.40.x.x version of this driver that will be compatible with your 
wireless card from the following URL :


Under Linux, you can use the 'unzip' command on the .EXE file to extract the 
Windows driver. The required .INF file will be named 'AR/bcmwl5a.inf' inside 
the .EXE file.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the output 
of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

If the previous command crashes your computer, please try this command 
instead :

dldrconfig --dumpdiag --noprobe

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