What is psuedo IBSS? & iBook connection problem.

I have installed the Host AP driver on a compaq P75 laptop running SuSE 7.3, kernel version 2.4.10. The driver loads without error, but I cannot get an iBook with it's built-in Airport card to connect. If I set the wlan0 interface to "master" (ie:AP?) the essid shows up in the iBook's list of networks in range, but gives a "there was an error joining the selected Airport network." As I don't have any other wireless lan cards to test, I don't know where the problem is, if the cards just will not talk to each other, or if I need to configure the Linux wlan interface a bit differently.

So I am reading the documentation for the driver and see mention of a psuedo ibss mode. What is this? When I enable it, the only difference is the green blinking light on the wlan card goes solid green. Any ideas on what the lights on the card should be doing for the different modes?

By the way, the card is a Zcomax XI-300.
