after you using on our our 16K stacks kernel for Fedora Core 3? The 
Atheros driver generally requires more than 4K of stacks and it is the 
likely source of the problem.

First of all, please boot your machine in single user mode and please 
remove the installed DriverLoader package with the 'dldrconfig 
--uninstall' command in a root shell. After you have done this, you will 
be able to normally boot your system.

Then, please download and install one our 16K stacks kernel available from:



Boot this new kernel and try again to install DriverLoader.
