Can't remove modules...

Hi, recently i've installed, ArchLinux, everything went so fine, but now im having some problems installing broadcom wireless firmware.

When im trying to remove b43 module (rmmod b43 or modprobe -r b43), to install 'broadcom wl'. The system quit from 'X' and shows me something like a debug, or the actions performed by rmmod, and it blocks. Then i have to physically reboot.

Does anyone knows what it is?

I would blacklist the b43 module and reboot. That should keep it from loading at all.
