Kismet & monitoring

I have been trying to get kismet to run on the apple's airport card and
I get this output when I run kismet as su

Server options:  none
Client options:  none
Starting server...
Suid priv-dropping disabled.  This may not be secure.
Waiting for server to start before startuing UI...
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
Source 0 (airport): Enabling monitor mode for orinoco source interface
eth1 channel 1...
FATAL: Could not find 'monitor' private ioctl or use the newer style
'mode monitor' command.  This typically means that the drivers have not
been patched or the correct drivers are being loaded. See the
troubleshooting section of the README for more information.

I just got my wirless network up over the weekend and been needing to
check some security with kismet but I don't know if I am supposed to put
the airport card in monitor mode and if so I have not found anything
under iwconfig.

I have put the right orinoco driver with eth1
