I think the message is perfectly clear.  Images for flashing should not be
loaded to volatile RAM and vice versa.  Either "-r R" or "-f S".  And by
the way, you need to upgrade primary firmware to 1.1.1.  The HOWTO for
upgrading firmware is here:

It's the second hit for the Google search for "how to upgrade intersil
firmware", by the way.

You are using an old prism2_srec utility.  This "updata" typo has been
fixed for months.  Don't even think about flashing primary firmware with
it - you'll kill the card.  Either use CVS hostap or the Windows utility,
as described in the HOWTO.
