Trying to install hostap on a UltraSPARC running Debian

I have a new starter kit with two PCMCIA USR Robotics 2410 cards. I have
also one "adapter" for PCI to put one of this card in a PCI-based
computer. See
for more informations.

I'm trying to install the adapter with one card in a SPARC Ultra 10
running Debian. Loading the module give me the folowing messages :

hostap_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
hostap_plx: hostap_plx.c 0.0.0 2002-10-12 (SSH Communications Security Corp, Jouni Malinen)

Prism2/2.5 PC Card detected in PLX9052 adapter
hostap_plx: Could not enable Local Interrupts
hostap_plx: No devices found, driver not installed.
hostap_crypt: unregistered algorithm 'NULL' (deinit)

What can I do to have it working on the Ultra 10 ?

Please note the PCMCIA card work great on a x86 Debian laptop and
hostap. Note also I'm really new to wireless.

I also have try orinoco_cs and linux-wlan-ng, without success too. (but
maybe more bad, as I the modules crash with a oops...).

Thanks in advance for any tips.
