I'm on kernel.org 2.4.25

hostap_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
hostap_pci: 0.4.1 - 2005-05-22 (Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at cc.hut.fi>)
hostap_pci: Registered netdevice wifi0
wifi0: Original COR value: 0x11
prism2_hw_init: initialized in 190 ms
wifi0: NIC: id=0x8013 v1.0.0
wifi0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.0
wifi0: STA: id=0x1f v1.4.2
wifi0: defaulting to host-based encryption as a workaround for firmware 
bug in Host AP mode WEP
wifi0: defaulting to bogus WDS frame as a workaround for firmware bug in 
Host AP mode WDS
wifi0: Warning: secondary station firmware version 1.4.2 does not seem 
to work in Host AP mode
wifi0: Intersil Prism2.5 PCI: mem=0xfa009000, irq=17
wifi0: registered netdevice wlan0
wlan0: updating basic rate set automatically to match with the new 
supported rate set
[root at baywinds modules]# hostap_diag wlan0
Host AP driver diagnostics information for 'wlan0'

ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: Operation not permitted
hostap_diag requires root privileges

and I get a similar result from prism2_srec -r rf010704.hex

any thoughts on what I've done wrong?
