[driverloader] Kerrnel hangs occasionally at boot time.

Driverloader 2.06 on Fedora core 2 with custom compiled kernel 2.6.9 
(and previous versions, with and without 4k stacks)  will occasionally 
hang the system at boot time (Dell Inspiron 8600).

 When the "bringing up loopback interface" boot message suceeds, and the 
"starting driverloader" boot message is about to be displayed, the 
system hangs with zero disk activity indefinitely.  Uninstalling 
driverloader returns the system to normal boot behavior.   Usually 
booting into windows then back into Linux will somehow get around the 
boot problem.

It usually happens when booting on battery power after using AC, but not 
every time. 

95% of the time, I have the modem shut off via Fn-F2 as I use the 
ethernet connection.

This has been going on for more than 8 months.  Any help would be 
greatly appreciated.  thanks.
