Thanks for responding, and sorry for not responding
sooner. I must have missed that faq that said that as
I try not to ask questions tat FAQ's already covered
Actually, I have been able to get HostAP working with
my Dell 1150 Card with only (very) minor problems.
Here's some of my basic specs of my not-soo-beefy

If anybody wants the particulars on how I got it to
work (no source code editing needed), just say so.
I'll also need to include networking-related kernel
sections and the pcmcia card configs.
