Hi,

I downloaded the kernel source, kernel headers, and hostap.

root at ubuntu:/usr/src # ls -l
total 36740
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   119107 2004-12-28 21:43 hostap-source.tar.bz2
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root src        19 2005-08-12 18:34 linux -> linux-source-2.6.10
drwxr-xr-x  17 root root     4096 2005-08-13 10:15 linux-headers-2.6.10-5
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root     4096 2005-08-13 10:15 linux-headers-2.6.10-5-386
drwxr-xr-x  18 root root     4096 2005-08-13 09:49 linux-source-2.6.10
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 37431650 2005-06-24 15:06 linux-source-2.6.10.tar.bz2
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root     4096 2004-12-28 21:43 modules
drwxr-xr-x   7 root root     4096 2005-08-12 11:03 rpm

but when I do a make from within the in the /usr//usr/src/modules/hostap-source
I get a ton of errors starting off with:
make -C /usr/src/linux
SUBDIRS=/usr/src/hostap/modules/hostap-source/driver/modules \
        MODVERDIR=/usr/src/hostap/modules/hostap-source/driver/modules modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.10'
  CC [M]  /usr/src/hostap/modules/hostap-source/driver/modules/hostap.o
In file included from
/usr/src/hostap/modules/hostap-source/driver/modules/hostap.c:19:

Thanks
