Version 1 of these cards has a Prism 2.5 chip.  Version 2 contain a different 
brand of chip.  I believe the version 2 cards say that they are version 2 
somewhere on the board.  (My cards are version 1, so I don't know for sure.)

Your insmod problems are probably just the result of your not loading all the 
necessary modules (there are 3).  Try using modprobe instead of insmod (and 
don't forget to 'depmod -a' after installing the modules).  Also you can get 
unresolved symbols for hostap_cs if you don't have PCMCIA support compiled 
in.  Just ignore those, if you get them.
