	I've been reading some of the posts on this list, and it seems that there
was at least one documented success story with a dwl-520.  I sent some mails
and they were very useful, however I am still having trouble modprobing the
hostap_pci driver.  I have the current CVS source compiled. 
here's my modprobe errors:

root at eaburns:~/hostap# lsmod

hostap                 52720   0  (unused)

/lib/modules/2.4.21/net/hostap_pci.o: insmod hostap_pci failed

dmesg had literally NOTHING about this driver load and nothing about
hostap.o being loaded either, however hostap.o appears to have loaded

any ideas?
