There is something off with my wireless extensions.  First question, are the 
wireless extensions included in the kernels now?  If so, how is it that a 
2.4.19 kernel has an "ancient" version of wireless extensions?

I just rebuilt my kernel with success this time on my laptop.  I then rebuilt 
pcmcia-cs-3.1.30 and hostap-2002-10-12.  

The output of "iwconfig --version" is
version 25 

with a note about being built using wireless extensions v13

Where do the wireless extensions reside?  Is the hostap-2002-10-12 driver so 
far behind wrt wireless extensions?
