OK I've managed to get to the bottom of this error.

The default kismet_drone.conf file has all the default channel selections turned on, none of them are commented out, when I left just the 802.11b 1-13 channels as the only selection I can now successfully run drone on a fonera (by the way the fonera normally has about 5mb free, it's just this one had some specific software running).

So now I've got this problem addressed I'm posting a new message for the next problem.
