please boot in single user mode. You can generally do that by adding the
keyword 'single' without the quotes to the end of the kernel command
line. You can also edit the kernel command line while you are in the
After booting in single user mode, you can remove the DriverLoader
package with the 'dldrconfig --uninstall' command. Then, you should be
able to normally boot your machine if DriverLoader was the actual source
of the problem.
Then, you should try with different versions of the Windows XP driver to
see if there is a difference. Please also note that DriverLoader 2.30
doesn't have support for WPA2, only WPA (1). We hope to add WPA2 support
to DriverLoader in the future.

> * wireless_tools
> * wpa_supplicant
> * networkmanager
> when i configured everything but license key, everything was going
> fine. when i entered the license key, the kernel paniced. retries did

> solved the problem, but it increased the problem more!
> now i cannot boot up linux!!!
