Using a Belkin 54g card I have a problem mentioned in this list several times: 
(2.09 release, specific rpm for 10.1 kernel)

"driverloader device eth1 doesn't seem to be present"

Driverloader seems is trying to be loaded to early.

I have added to /etc/rc.local this two lines at the end of the file:

rmmod driverloader
modprobe driverloader

Now I have the error message in the linux startup, but when X is launched the 
light of the card is on and the card is runing fine.

I think this too early driverloader load should be corrected.
