WL200 + HostAP Problem

I'm having trouble getting my WL200 working with HostAP.

This is running on 2.4.18, pcmcia 3.2.1 and the latest HostAP.

I have read WL200 posts from the archive, WL200 + HostAP guides and
various other googled material, but cannot find a solution.

Following one of the guides, I recompiled without pcmcia. I then copied
hostap into pcmcia-cs. Installed pcmcia-cs, which seemed to go to plan.
Apon reboot, I was greeted with one loud beep and one softer. I'm told
the softer one is bad.

Dmesg returns these relevant lines:

Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.2.1

It recognises the CL bridge, but doesn't seem to see the PCMCIA card

/var/log/messages returns these relevant lines:

I have tried adding the following lines to pcmcia
PCIC_OPTS='irq_mode=1 irq_list=0'
PCIC_OPTS='irq_mode=1 irq_list=0 extra_sockets=1'

None seemed to help.

Can someone give me an idea as to my problem?
