you have sent your message to the wrong mailing list.  This list is only 
used to discuss about DriverLoader which is a revolutionary 
compatibility-wrapper allowing standard Windows NDIS (Network Driver 
Interface Specification) drivers shipped by hardware vendors to be used 
as-is on Linux x86 systems.

You should could ask other Fedora Core 3 users on a Fedora Core specific 
mailing list, perhaps you will get a solution to your problem. A list of 
mailing lists for Fedora Core is available at:
