Senao Interrupt Problems

I'm sort of at the head-scratching phase here so any help would be
Currently I am attempting to set up a RedHat 7.2 machine with a Senao
2011CD pcmcia card (the 200mW one). I have had this card working under
RedHat 9 with the orinoco_cs driver and under 7.2 with the orinoco_cs
driver, but I've had problems with hostap. I am using Asron Baer's
hostap RedHat kernel from RPM.
ifconfig shows the interface up with a hardware address of
00:00:00:00:00:00 - see the syslog messages below to understand why:
Jun 16 10:57:06 gateway cardmgr: config error, file
'./hostap_cs.conf' line 1: no function bindings

dmesg has this repeating over and over

wlan0: hfa384x_cmd_issue - timeout - reg=0x8000
wlan0: hfa384x_cmd: entry still in list? (entry=c4f6bce0, type=0, res=-1)
iwconfig wlan0 shows the following:
[root at gateway log]# iwconfig wlan0
Warning : Device wlan0 has been compiled with version 13
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 11.
Some things may be broken...

The modules are loaded as I would expect:
[root at gateway log]# lsmod

Every iwconfig command I issue to set a value to this device fails
(SIOCSIWESSID: Invalid argument). What is the next step I would take in
order to troubleshoot this problem. Like I said, everything worked fine
(sort of) with the orinoco driver, but I'm stumped on hostap.
