cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig
make dep

cd ~/hostap/
make pccard
make install_pccard

restart the comp (not entirely necessary, but most thourough)
the drivers should be installed at this point, you may have to tweak things
to get the drivers to load properly (what i do is REMOVE the entry for the
card in the prism2_cs.conf , so it will use the hostap.conf to load the
proper drivers...)

good luck
