Answering my own question (a couple of google-hours later..)

-I got the card in a win2k machine
-I flashed it with the windows flasher and 1.4.9 code
-I can now upload 1.5.6 to ram at startup.

I sitll can get WDS to work, and I am trying to use the latest CVS code 
that says hostapd can be client and server at the same time, but it does
not seem to work...

WDS never worked. AP is Linksys WAP11. Hostap works in managed mode,
but I need to use it to bridge to nets...
