You're using an extremely old kismet version, several years out of date and before that card was ever made. It's not at all surprising that it doesn't work. Upgrade and read the install/configuration directions for modern kismet versions. You will most likely need to use the kernel drivers and not third-party drivers as well.

You should be running Kismet 2011-01-R1 or newer.
