So I take it that the combo is good?

hydrogen:~/firmware# prism2_srec wlan0 pk010101.hex.1.5.9 sf010704.hex.txt
srec summary for pk010101.hex.1.5.9
Component: 0x0015 1.1.1 (primary firmware)

srec summary for sf010704.hex.txt
Component: 0x001f 1.7.4 (station firmware)


Verifying update compatibility and combining data:
Plug record length mismatch (PDR=0x0001): 12 != 16
==> extend from default
PRI: old iface 1:1-3 new iface 1:4-4
Allowing S3 overlap due to CRC-16 signature at 0x007e17fe (was: ffff)
OK.


Why are the files 
http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/firmware/1.7.4/pk010101.hex 
/intersil-prism/firmware/1.8.2/PK010101.HEX

different when I diff them even though they are the same version, 
supposedly?
