You don't say what kind of Linux, or what you've done and not
done, or what you know and don't know.  So I'll guess.

With Fedora Core 3, configure your Wireless card using
You type this command after logging in to a terminal window as
root, usually with the su command.  (There are many other ways,
but this is one way.)

You may need to make sure that kudzu has run, and look at
for the identity of your wireless card.  For me, with a similar
card, it is Broadcom .... [don't have that computer handy].
You may need to add something to

alias eth2 b44
(or something like that).  I got the b44 from hwconf.

To remove driverloader, if you used the RPM to install it, then
use rpm to remove it:

 I am a new Linux user and I have just installed Mandrake 10.1 on my
 notebook, a Dell Inspiron 8600 with Dell Truemobile 1300 as Wireless card.

 Everything is ok except the wifi with WPA. Searching on the net, I have
 found your product and I have downloaded the trial. I installed it and I
 configure it. It was OK. However, the connexion doesn't work. The interface
 does not seem to be recognized.
 Could you tell me how to configure the wifi connexion using your product.
 Also, how do we install the WPA components ?
 Finally, in the cas it is not ok, how is it possible to uninstall
 DriverLoader ?
 If everything is OK, I will buy your product because I find it is a good
 idea to use Windows drivers on Linux.
 Thank you,
