Yes, as I said you need to handle your adaptor like a PCMIA slot and thus
you need the pcmcia drivers. There are 2 options: the kernel version or

kernel and install this new kernel.

If you whish to get the most out of hostap you might want to read There's a
list of the upgrades you need if you would like to upgrade to the latest
wireless tools and wireless extentions.

Hope this helps,
