    Ok, im taking a shot in the dark here as all my resources are becomming exhausted.

    Kernel: 2.6.9-42.EL-smp-i686 & 2.6.8-42.EL
    Dist: Centos4 (default install - no updates applied yet)
    Hardware: HP Pavilion a1310y (P4 w/ HT) : Linksys WMP54G (Ralink 2560) v4

    Driver Version: rt2500-cvs-2007051313 and rt2500-1.1.0-b4

    The problem i keep getting is with running make

    # make
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-42.EL-smp-i686'

    i can't help directly solve your problem, but I have 2 WMP54G's running under Ubuntu 7.04 atm and they work fine with ndiswrapper and the windows drivers. no speed issues or anything. why don't you just do that?
