With this particular driver, I think you are making a mistake. rt2x00
is available as an independent driver (i.e. without ndiswrapper).
As can be read in the project's history , the open-source project
started because Ralink decided to release the Linux drivers under a
free license. There's no mention on the page of a Windows driver.
Also, rt2x00 is already packaged in Debian as rt2400-source and rt2500-source.
