Quick question, have installed it and it correctly picks up that I
have a Ralink wireless card installed, however I can't seem to see an
option to put the card into hostap mode. Is such a thing possible and
I'm being inept or is it limited to Atheros only?

Other than that, looks great, thanks so much to everyone who's worked
so hard on this. Looking forward to seeing what the next release will
bring!
