Bootup error : Unexpected LVT TMR intterupt

Thank You Ambedkar!
Actually the Linksys card worked on the old kernel(without any
compilation).It automatically loaded orinoco_cs and hostap_cs, when I
inserted the card and I could access the internet.But when I compiled the
new kernel, I think I set something different in the configuration(though I
dont remember doing anything different other than setting host ap options to
'Yes' instead of modularize).So, do you mean that the absence of appropriate
driver caused the bootup error?
My goal is to make the card act as an access point.So I want hostap_cs
driver to work on the card.Do I need hostapd(daemon) to actually set AP
mode?I am new to this, I dont really understand how to make the Linksys
WPC11 work as an access point.It will be very helpful if you could clarify.

-Thank you
Archana Rajagopal.
