Question Invalid command : monitor

Does anyone know how can I enable the monitor function on a Intersil Prism2 802.11 PCMCIA card ?

I've read some docs but I'm a bit lost.
here's some outputs:
Milo:~ # iwpriv eth1
eth1 Available private ioctl :

set_ibssport (8BE6) : set 1 int & get 0
get_ibssport (8BE7) : set 0 & get 1 int
dump_recs (8BFF) : set 0 & get 0
