Yes I am running everything in the root and I have a thread running on the same issue: http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2007-September/016012.html
Following are the settings in my hostapd.conf / madwifi.conf [i have pruned both to check if any of these works]
It would be great if you could help me out or atleast direct me to someone who could solve the same.

sorry, but i can't remember how i solved it. it was a long time ago and
i wasn't doing anything with wlan since then.
if i remember correctly it was something quite simple, something like
missing root-privileges. did you try running it as root?
the selection of the EAP-type and other things is done in the config-file.

Please also tell me if running the above command would be enough to start the complete AP or hostapd as such or we need to give commands on the prompt for type of EAP, association etc?
