I have heard that support for the Ralink 2860 driver (used in several 
PCI cards & the Eee) is going to show up in the 2.6.28 kernel tree--Is 
this a correct assumption? I am in Jaunty testing with a Encore PCI 
wireless N card that uses the Ralink 2860 & am staying with the .27 
kernel until I get more info.

I have used the PPA: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stgraber/ubuntu 
intrepid main  with jaunty & DKMS will build on the .27 kernel without 
problems, but I try to build on the .28 kernel & get a "OK" but the 
module will not work. Kernel header problem? I have some info saved & am 
able to do testing  (very motivated) in this area.

Bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/210725  for the Ralink 2860. 
I have added to the report but am wondering if I need to create a new 
bug report "if" the driver wiil be available soon..
