ACPI is not required to use DriverLoader. There is currently a known 
problem with power management and DriverLoader which might be related to 
ACPI but in all cases the device was usable.

While the Windows XP driver is installed 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'). It'll help us solve the problem.
