Well, I think I've got everything going to make my modified RH9 machine
an access point, but I'm not sure what I'm missing.

Hardware is a Orinoco (Lucent) Gold 11Mbit card plugged into a PC-to-PCI
adapter.

I've upgraded to 2.6.4smp kernel, the latest iptables, 0.1.3 of the
hostap driver and installed the latest wirelss tools.  To get the card
to recognize the hostap driver from pcmcia-cs startup, I had to modify
my /etc/pcmcia/config and comment-out the following:

#card "Lucent Technologies WaveLAN/IEEE Adapter"
#  version "Lucent Technologies", "WaveLAN/IEEE"
#  bind "orinoco_cs"

I then added this to my /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf:

card "Lucent Technologies WaveLAN/IEEE Adapter"
  version "Lucent Technologies", "WaveLAN/IEEE"
  bind "hostap_cs"

The following is the output of when pcmcia-cs (cardmgr) is started:

So, now onto my problem....My goal here is to make this machine a
wireless access point/router.  It's functioning fine on the wired-side
for routing (masq), but not doing anything on the wireless side.  I set
an IP on the wlan0 interface of 192.168.1.1, setup DHCPd to listen on
that iface, and I never get any requests coming across.

My wireless clients see the sumner ESSID and seem to be able to connect
to it, but I'm not really sure if that's working either properly.
