DriverLoader can be uninstalled using the 'dldrconfig --uninstall' 
command in a root shell, this will work with all the different packages 
of DriverLoader, even with the source tarball (generic package in the 
TAR format).

You can use a generic package of DriverLoader with multiple kernels 
without any problems. Simply install DriverLoader while one of the 
kernel is booted, it doesn't matter which one. When you will boot the 
machine with another kernel, the DriverLoader module will be 
automatically built on boot for that new kernel. This will not affect 
your DriverLoader installation with the former kernel, it will still 
work when you will boot the former kernel.
