I updated the machine to mandrake 9.0 and thus kernel 2.4.19. The machine no 
longer hangs when i "modprobe hostap_pci".

Side note: I tried the prism2_pci driver in this new install as well, it fails 
when it tries to load the pcmcia card services... 

Did have some issues with modprobe though. Using "modprobe hostap_pci" 
fails... but using insmod to load the modules one at a time works fine. (Yes 
I did run "depmod -a" first).

so "modprobe hostap_pci" fails with "init module: No such device"
"insmod hostap_crypt; insmod hostap; insmod hostap_pci"
works fine.

It now shows in ifconfig and the wireless tools can read the parameters.
