I used to have an rt2500-based PCI card and I got it working by
compiling and installing the kernel module that comes in
'rt2500-source' (using module-assistant).  However, I installed my
system using a wired ethernet card.

So, in short, installing might require you moving your computer within
"wire distance" to your router/moden/whatever, but after that you'll be
able to enjoy wireless networking :)
