do you absolutely need to use the 'cardctl insert' command or else it 
will not work at all? If this is the case, then the problem is unlikely 
related to DriverLoader. You could try the following workaround to fix 
the problem. Under Red Hat 9.0, please edit the file '/etc/rc.local' and 
at the end of this file, please add the following lines:

cardctl insert
modprobe driverloader
ifup <iface>

In the last line, you should replace <iface> with the name of the 
wireless interface used by DriverLoader, for example, eth1.
