How about:

1. Install the kernel-source.rpm which version is the same as the current running
2. cd /usr/src/
3. Do symbolic link linux-2.4.20-8 --> linux
4. cd linux and do "make mrproper"
5. copy /boot/config-2.4.20-8 /usr/src/linux/.config
6. Run "make dep"
7. Compile & install hostap normally

Best Regards, Jar
