I put in the wireless LAN card into the usb port, being new to Ubuntu i'd expect something like Windows... Auto installing itself, but nothing happened.
With the card I have a disc for the wireless LAN card to install. Inside of the disc there is a folder called Linux. I'm assuming that that is how I install the driver.
Inside of that folder there are two more folders. One is which is for the driver. Inside of that is a .tar.bz2 folder and inside of that is two more folders called Module and WPA supp.
I have no idea and I did tried to search. I found a little bit of stuff but I don't think I understand. Could someone please give me the exact instructions to install the driver/files for it?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 and the card is a RT2070 Ralink Lan USB 11B/G 54M Wireless card 802.11.

Representative portion in case pastebin wipes this entry:
[ 234.984025] hub 1-0:1.0: Cannot enable port 8. Maybe the USB cable is bad? [ 234.984041] hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 8 [ 235.184037] hub 5-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2 [ 235.744031] usb 5-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 8 [ 235.864020] usb 5-2: device descriptor read/64, error -71
Ralink also has a page for support... http://eng.ralinktech.com.tw/support.php?s=2
This is what the readme file says, but it is to complicated to understand, maybe someone can translate it so it'll be less complicated?
Here are all folders/file names that is in the folder for the wireless USB driver
