(sorry for the earlier HTML post)

I'm trying to use hostap-driver-0.3.7. My system is Fedora Core 3 with 
(my own) kernel 2.6.10.

I sucessfully ran 'make' and 'make install'. Upon insertion of my 
Netgear MA401 PC card, I get the  output below in /var/log/messages.

Can someone shed some light on what might be going wrong here, and a 
possible fix?

Many thanks in advance.
