It seems the rt2x00 project has finally added support for the RT2860. If you look at:

hxxp://;a=summary will see that support for the RT2860 was implemented on 6/20! The problem is, I'm not to familiar with using GIT so I'm not exactly sure how to get the driver that contains support for the RT2860.

Can anyone help out with this? I know there's a lot of netbooks out there with this chipset (not sure if the mods may even want to place the new driver in the repository - if that's at all feasible...)
