Did SpeedDoubler work before this happened? Or did you decide to try SpeedDoubler for the first time and it caused a crash soon after startup?

Reinstall SpeedDoubler, or try removing SpeedDoubler preferences from the system folder before rebooting.

It's imposible to delete the prefs file from because there is no.
The only possiblity I have is disabling the ethernet in the 'chooser', but then my ethernet doesn't work, as normal.
What does I have to do that the speeddoubler and ethernet work?

Place a option-8 in front of the speed doublers name so it loads after ethernet.
