try explicitly adding
"INSTALL_MOD_DIR=/lib/modules/2.6.17.14-ubuntu1/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/hostap"
to your modules_install command.

I didn't think this was necessary when building "in-tree" modules, but
give it a try.
I don't know if it should go before "make", or before or after
"modules_install",
 but I'm pretty sure this will get it into the place you want.
(I found this variable in the file:
/usr/src/<KERNELVERSION>/scripts/Makefile.modinst)
