hostap-driver-0.1.3 compiles uder FC2 just fine.

1. cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.6-1.435
2. make mrproper
3. edit Makefile: EXTRAVERSION = -1.435custom --> EXTRAVERSION = -1.435
4. cp /boot/config-2.6.6-1.435 .config
5. make oldconfig
6. make
--------
7. cd /path_to_your_hostap/directory
8. edit Makefile:
KERNEL_PATH=/usr/src/linux -->
KERNEL_PATH=/usr/src/linux-2.6.6-1.435
9. make
10. cp driver/modules/*.ko 
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
11. depmod -a
12. The end. Hostap moduless are now installed and ready for use !
