You can have both installed at the same time. Usually your /etc/pcmcia/config file will include all *.conf in that directory. What I do is rename either hostap_cs.conf or wlan-ng.conf to i.e. when I'm using one driver or the other. Without the '.conf' extension, the file is not included and thus the "other" driver takes over. Just remember to restart your pcmcia services after renaming the files.

Another option is to remove the include for *.conf and specify which one you want in the config file. All module names are diferent between projects, so there's no risk of overwriting anything.
