Host AP driver for Intersil Prism2	(DEVELOPMENT VERSION!)
==================================

Copyright (c) 2001, SSH Communications Security Corp

This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify

details.


Note!
This development version is mainly for research use; it has not
been thoroughly tested and may contain various bugs. This is not for
production use and use of this driver may require thorough knowledge
of IEEE 802.11, pcmcia-cs, Linux, etc.


Driver installation
===================

Systems using kernel tree PCMCIA modules:

Go into 'kernel-tree' subdirectory and edit KERNEL_PATH in Makefile to
match your system. Run 'make' (this untars the sources and compiles
them; this step can be run as non-root user). After the compilation
has finished, you can install prism2.o by running 'make install' (as
root).


Systems using external pcmcia-cs modules:

Untar the driver tarball (prism2-0.0.0.tar.gz) on top of root
pcmcia-cs directory, i.e., so that prism2.c ends up in pcmcia-cs's
'modules' directory. After this you should be able to build and
install pcmcia-cs with this driver (prism2.o) using normal commands
('make config', 'make all', and 'make install').


Please read README.prism2 in prism2-0.0.0.tar.gz for further
information about the Host AP driver.
