[driverloader] I lose the configuration after the reboot

After the reboot, I lose the wireless configuration.  I check with the
network configuration tool of my Linux, the wireless is deactivated.  To
reactivate it, I run "cardctl insert": the wireless card is on then I launch
the Web Configurator, I upload the Windows XP driver. The wireless is
activated, the connection is established. I must make this handling with
each reboot.  How to avoid that? 

I'm using the latest version of DriverLoader 2.27. I installed it with

Thanks a lot,

for the configuration problem, if you use low level tools such as 
'iwconfig' and 'ifconfig' to configure the wireless interface, it is 
normal that these settings are not remembered after a reboot. We 
recommend that you use the network configuration tool provided in your 
Linux distribution to configure the wireless interface.

Since you are using a CardBus (32-bit PCMCIA) wireless card, please make 
sure that you are using the latest version of DriverLoader (currently 
2.27) as in this version we have introduced a workaround for a problem 
to start on boot the wireless interface on some machines with CardBus 
wireless cards.

If the 'device is busy' error message is generated because of 
DriverLoader, then please try with different versions of the Windows XP 
driver, it is possible that one of them will fix the problem. 
Alternatively, you could try to run the 'dldrstop' command in a root 
shell just before you reboot the machine.
