I just installed Ubuntu Hardy Alpha 4, the driver barely works, I can only get 19kbps max throughput and the driver causes 40% cpu usage, after dealing with that, I had to modprobe -r rt73usb and blacklist the ralink drivers, I headed over to http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Downloads and grabbed the latest rt73 driver, compiled it, make installed it and modprobed the driver, now the serialmonkey driver is BORKED! WTF? "SIOSSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument" on ifconfig up on, so.. searched google and I landed here http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4558 to find a ghetto fix for this issue by doing as follows:
modprobe rt73
ip link set wlan0 address 00:00:00:00:00:11
ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig wlan0 
the serialmonkey will fix this driver like always but the Ubuntu dev's driver BLOWS still unfortunately....
