hi, iam not familiar with hostap source but isnt firmware download not 
enabled by default in fawn?

how did u check this? i had the same problem with ubuntu and udev, 
where udev renamed my device to wlan0_temp.

i can confirm this. i gave the hostap source a try with a selfmade 
2.6.18 kernel without success. as far as i remember correctly, there 
have been a few modifications from 2.6.18 on, where 
/include/linux/version.h is now /include/linux/utsrelease.h.

just my 5 cent
