Ok, so I wiped the partition, reinstalled Slacko, linked to the kernel sources, ran the install.sh script in the Ralink folder, and it seemed to finish with no errors. I ran "depmod", rebooted, and clicked the "wlan0 Ralink RT2800 USB wireless" option in Simple Network Setup.

Sadly, it says "Failed to activate interface 'wlan0. Sometimes this is a temporary problem. Go back to the main window, and you can try again..."

Clicking "View log of attempted connection" gives:

Code:
phy0 -> rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware.


Bummer.

Good night.

Buy 1 each of that companys 42 wireless devices and your
driver cd will come in handy (if you're installing Windows).

Or: go to the link I gave you for instructions from
Tempestuous on how to make it work in Lucid.

Chili Dog,
You need the firmware "rt2870.bin"!
Put the attach file in " /lib/firmware " unplug and replug the adapter and surf!

the module your usb device is rt2800usb! its in your puppy but not the firmware!

You can download it from address: http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=00250594769329972239
