for the first problem, this is a known problem. You can use the 
'--force-architecture' flag as you have mentioned or use the TAR package 

For the second problem, it is possible that it is related to the 
DriverLoader DEB package you have installed. If you install the TAR 
package of DriverLoader, do you still have the same problem?

For the third issue, you could try with different versions of the 
Windows XP driver to see if there is a difference. You should also make 
sure that your kernel was compiled without the following options enabled:


If any of these options is enabled, please disable it, re-compile your 
kernel and then re-compile the DriverLoader module with the 'dldrconfig 
-k' command in a root shell.
