The stock Debian linux-kernel-2.6.x and/or kernel-image-2.6.x packages

from the standard mirrors, so it's fairly easy to:
apt-get install rt2500-source
tar -xzf rt2500*

/lib/modules/2.6.12-686-1 (or some name like that)
so modprobe didn't find them until I moved them from the 2.6.12
directory to the 2.6.12-686-1 and then rerun depmod -a
