Fedora kernels have it enabled by default, no need to recompile, so just
install kernel-source.*.*.rpm package that matches your running kernel
(if not already installed) go to /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358 and copy the
standard config  as this...

# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358
# cp configs/kernel-2.6.5-i686.config .config

then go to where you put the hostap driver...

cd /wherever/is/hostap-driver-0.1.3 and edit the Makefile and find in
the first lines one entry as shown and change it to the following

# Edit this path to match with your system (it should point to the root
# directory of the Linux kernel source)
KERNEL_PATH= /lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/build/
Now you can 

# make
# make install


# insmod hostap... etc

Please read the README file of the distribution for options, etc...

Good luck!
