hi,

i am new to hostap and i have problems making it work. i have
successfully compiled and loaded kernel modules.  when i do 

# ifconfig wlan0 up
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
hostap_cs              41384   0 (autoclean) (unused)
hostap                 52068   0 (autoclean) [hostap_cs]
hostap_crypt            1316   0 (autoclean) [hostap]
ds                      6720   2 [hostap_cs]
i82365                 22544   2
pcmcia_core            41568   0 [hostap_cs ds i82365]
3c59x                  24808   1

i put alias wlan0 hostap_cs in modules.conf. what should i do to
start it up?

btw, can hostap operates in normal station mode and have PSM on?
any help will be greatly appreciated.
