I have two problems with driverloader running on Mandrake 10.1 community
and a D-Link DWL-610.

after mandrake attempted to start the eth1 interface. I solved this by
changing the name of /etc/rc5.d/S11driverloader to S10driverloader.
The second problem is harder to solve. When loaded into memory on boot,
the driverloader module does not function at all. I have checked that
the module is in memory with lsmod, but no lights on the network card
If I remove the driver and reload it with rmmod and modprobe, it starts
to function immediately.
Why doesn't it work when it is loaded at boot time, and how can I make
