Hi everybody!

I have a Socket Comm. 802.11b WL6000-320.
I has a Symbol chipset, and no NVRAM, so I know that I must load it.
In a week of STFW, I learned of
http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/
http://www.paris-sansfil.fr/~poggij/prism2/
and the more important!
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/

I´ve made it work in my laptop with knoppix, and two files from
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/symbol-fw.tar.bz2
but using spectrum_cs and the hotplug downloader.

This card is CF and I need it to use with a Zaurus SL-56000 running
OpenZaurus 3.5.2. The bundled spectrum_cs does not work at all,
so I am trying with hostap that is compiled on it too.

I´ve read everything, and my remaining problem is:
How can I say witch .hex files do I have to pass hostap?

So this is my sad story.
I am loosing my hair, and my wife is willing to call some very polite 
guys in white,
who will try to put me on a white skirt and tie my arms in my back :)

Thanks in advance.
Sebastian Muñiz.
