yes you need to have a configuration block in the 
/etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf file, so that at boot time the pcmcia module 
knows to bind to the hostap driver.

My config block for my RangeLAN-DS look like:

	card "Proxim RangeLAN"
	   version "PROXIM", "RangeLAN-DS/LAN PC CARD"
	   manfid 0x0126, 0x8000
	   bind "hostap_cs"

In order to find the version & manfid above you can type on a root shell

	cardctl ident

Also, don't forget to add an alias line to the /etc/modules.conf file

	alias wlan0 hostap_cs

Hope that helps
