I believe I just discussed this with someone else, and it currently looks like the ath9k drivers don't do rfmon very well. You could try getting the compat-wireless driver package (if slax has one or you can build one), or trying to go to 2.6.28 or even 2.6.29rc1.

The mac80211 drivers like ath9k have been under a fair bit of development thrash lately and sometimes don't behave very well.
