well, good news is with kind help of Jelle Vanhove, i managed to get it
work. Jelle sent me version 5 of drivers, and driverloader now activates my
card at boot. Using another clue from mail list archive, i modified the
XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX file under config ,setting up wep etc. (i checked the
values using inf file of driver)
Also it seems that setting acpi=noirq is not a must. driverloader seems to
load fine (well most of the time :). but random freezes occur after i assign
the card an ip using dhcp client. The red led on the card is  normally
always on. But after some time i assign the ip, it goes of and on , and
during that the system starts to hang, like cpu is 100% used. After some
time (not much, 30 seconds most) my system goes down for good :( and hangs.
Now, what would you recommend me for finding out the reason of this ? Is
this a known issue ?  just before the sytem went down, i did a couple of
dmesg 's and saw that the card was being disconnected.
I'm open for suggestions. And please tell me what files i need to send so
that you can help me out with this, since i managed to get pass the wep
problem, i did not write the command. Now this is what i do: i boot the
system, and after that i do the following
iwconfig wlan0 key s:mykeyinascii
ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig eth0 down (on board card of laptop)
dhcpd wlan0

i hope someone knows the answer ..
Best Regards

please send at support at linuxant.com the full and exact command you have
attempted to use to set your WEP key. You should also tell us what is
the version of the DriverLoader package which is currently installed.
You can obtain this information in the output of the 'dldrconfig
--version' command in a root shell.

Did you tried to disable WEP on your access point to see if you are able
to set up the wireless connection with the Windows XP driver?
