Either build the kernel with HostAP compiled into it or make a module
and transfer that module to the second system so that the kernel can
load it.  In that case the module must have been compiled for the
kernel that is going to load it so be careful if the two machines run
different kernels.  Would I be right in guessing that the system that
has no development environment is a firewall?
