[driverloader] PlanetCCRMA-edge kernel and driverloader

these kernels are not officially supported by DriverLoader and the 
2.6.11 kernel will be officially supported when the final (stable) 
2.6.11 kernel will be released.

Thank you for reporting the MD5 checksum problem for the TAR package on 
our web site, this issue should now be fixed.

It's unlikely that using the TAR version of the package will fix the 
problem. You should continue to use the 2.6.10-2.1.ll.rhfc3.ccrma kernel 
which is working fine with DriverLoader. It is possible that adding 
support for the 2.6.11 kernel in a future release of DriverLoader will 
fix the problem with your custom 2.6.11 kernel.
