we did some testing on Ubuntu 6.10 with DriverLoader 2.34 and it doesn't 
require any patches to be installed, as far as I know. We will provide 
pre-compiled packages for Ubuntu 6.10 soon.

If you want an easy way to use WPA2 with Ubuntu 6.10 and DriverLoader, 
you could try to use NetworkManager. This software can be installed with 

sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome

command in a shell.
