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 [1], 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.
