the hang probably occurs when the Windows XP driver is loaded by 
DriverLoader. Please use the following commands in a root shell to 
remove the installed Windows XP driver from your computer :

rm -fr /var/lib/driverloader
mkdir /var/lib/driverloader

Then, please install the 2.03 package again. When the package is 
installed and before you upload the Windows XP driver with the Web 
Configurator, 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').

You should also send us the .INF file used by your Windows XP driver as 
well as your kernel configuration file ".config".

All this information will help us solve the problem.
