hi leonardo.

for a working setup i use madwifi-old and debian kernels 2.6.14-15 (Wireless Extensions- /IEEE stack Version!) and hostapd 0.4.7 stable.

ath0 is configured static inet auto and with channel,iwpriv mode 3,essid in interfaces file and up before starting hostapd. *

ive never tried hostapd on madwifi-ng because of outstanding critical bugs on madwifi.org tracker and it runs on my domain-server, 
i cant risk to crash.

if you want you may surely need latest 2.6.15 and hostapd-cvs head.
if kernel crashes pls attach serial (cable) console from another machine and/or ksymoops 
to catch oops and report to madwifi.org bugtracker.

tom
