Looking for troubleshooting advice, stuck at installation ..

I started a hostap installation today from source on a fresh SuSE 9.0 notebook to finish up a howto for other SuSE users. It didn't work as smoothly as I thought it would.
Here's what I did:
Removed my SMC2532W-B PC Card (rebadged Zcom XI-325H)
Moved /etc/pcmcia/*.conf to /oldconf
In /usr/src/linux I ran a "make cloneconfig && make dep"
In the hostap folder I ran "make pccard" then "make install_pccard"
Plugged in my SMC2532W-B PC Card
And hostap doesn't load. I checked the hostap_cs.conf file in /etc/pcmcia, and my manfid is there under the Zcom XI-325H listing.
I ran modprobe hostap, which immediately returned to the console .. no error or any other output.
Any ideas for troubleshooting?
