Drat...  I guess they are already installed....

But what I am trying to do is to understand why the
kernel cannot seem to be able to load the rt2x00
when I plug in my rt2879 USB adapter.

I did:

# lsmod | grep rt
(nothing returned)

# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 14b2:3c27 Atheros Communications Inc

# dmesg
usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=14b2, idProduct=3c27
usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-4: Product: 802.11 n WLAN
usb 1-4: Manufacturer: Ralink
usb 1-4: SerialNumber: 1.0

I cannot seem to figure out how to get the USB wireless module loaded.

Any ideas?
