Well, I received a $20 RaLink-2500 card that I got on eBay today. I put it in a machine, booted a recent Knoppix disc and tried:

 iwconfig ra0 mode monitor
 vi /etc/kismet/kismet.conf

and it worked like a charm! All stock drivers, everything just worked.

Could you post the output of lsmod - which driver is the Ralink card using?
