I don?t know. But I have _always_ been able to compile hostap driver under RH, when
first prepare the kernel-source by doing the steps 1-8.

1. Install the kernel-source.rpm which version corresponds the current running kernel.
2. cd /usr/src/
3. Do symbolic link linux-2.4.20-8 --> linux
4. cd /usr/src/linux and do "make mrproper"
5. copy /boot/config-2.4.20-8 /usr/src/linux/.config
6. Edit Kernel Makefile: EXTRAVERSION = -20.8Custom --> EXTRAVERSION = -20.8
7. Run make oldconfig
8. Run "make dep"
9. Compile & install hostap normally

Best Regards, Jar
