Download the codes from http://hostap.epitest.fi/ (under the Latest
stable release) and follow the instructions in README files of each one
of them for compilation and usage. They are very much self-explanatory.

Otherwise, read the tutorials available at

The README in wpa_supplicant code has an example config for WPA-PSK.

You don't need to do anything for this. The interface is "added"
automatically by the driver. Just 'ifconfig and 'iwconfig' on the
created interface wlan0.

Read the sections 'Monitoring other APs' & 'Manual scan and roaming' in
the README of the driver.

Where else? READMEs only.
