cannot get wicd and ndiswrapper to work together,


I just installed linux 9.04 and updated it fully, and only installed two programs. wicd manager and ndiswrapper. I only installed the rt2870.inf file in the same folder beside the .sys file. I cant get wicd to show my router, thats plugged in beside me. I can see it on windows, and connect, but not linux. Also, I have no clue how to setup the wireless interfaces, and such. But, can anybody give me a detailed step by step guide on how to get internet working with wicd and nidiswrapper, and my USB wifi stick, with the ralink chipset, with rt2870.inf driver, (Extra details)?
I'm pretty new, so I hope it'll work Thanks alot guys, I'm sick of windows...
