please try with different versions of the Windows XP driver to see if 
there is a difference.

You should also try with a non-SMP kernel as some Windows XP drivers 
have race conditions in them when used under a SMP kernel, even under 

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

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