You are going to have to use the wlan drivers if you want to use kismet
or airsnort.  I'm using the wlan-ng modules right now: 

rnowakow@ltrnowak03:~$ export COLUMNS=180; dpkg -l "*wlan*" | grep ii
ii  linux-wlan-ng                           0.2.0-12     utilities for wireless prism2 cards
ii  linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.20-1-686      2.4.20-7+0.2.0-6     drivers for wireless prism2 cards
