    first you'll need the kernel source, install it from the DVD it's under slackware/k/kernel source
    go to http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Hom...ort/Linux.html
    download the following:
    11g RT2500 PCI/mPCI/CB(Source Code)
    unpack it usinf tar -xvf
    go inside the unpacked directory under module do ./Configure
    make
    make install
    depmod -a
    modprobe rt2500
    ifup ra0

    hope this help
