Jouni makes available two pieces of software with very nearly the same
name but with radically different purposes. Hostap is a driver for a
specific series of chipsets (Prism), whereas hostapd is what you need to
create a wireless access point that supports WPA(2).
I have no experience with the Intel chipset that you mention, but if you
have a driver for it that is compatible with the Linux wireless
extensions then you should be able to use hostapd with it (compile it
for wext). Or select whichever API to your wireless driver is
appropriate and compile/configure hostapd to use that (I only use
Atheros chipsets and therefore use the madwifi driver and hostapd
Hope this helps.
