That is interesting. Did you test on a AMD64 box (I run a Ferrari
4005)? I had significant problems getting DriverLoader to work on
Ubuntu 6.10 w/AMD64. In fact even after patching driver loader (which
caused it to work) I was unable to maintain a connection until I
upgraded my kernel to 2.6.18 which has solved all the problems I was having.
Yes NetworkManager is wonderful, I use it all the time. Couldn't live
without it now. :-)
