Can Linux support a "Ralink corp. RT2800 802.11n PCI" (maybe a RT2860STA?) in an Asus EEE 901 netbook [migrated]

http://serverfault.com – OK, I know that this isn't going to be straightforward, but I'd really like to get it working. About 18-24 months ago, my Asus EEE 901 netbook was working fine - running Ubuntu - and I let it 'upgrade' as the update manager suggested. The wi-fi subsequently failed - and, while busy with other things, fiddled and 'hosed' the OS install. The netbook stayed in a cupboard until this weekend... when I overwrote the drives using /dev/zero - then installed a completely fresh copy of Linux Mint 12. On the fresh install, I'm still having problems with the Wi-Fi, though everything else is fine. Wit (HowTos)
