Linksys Wireless G compact USB adapter error

On Ubuntu 6.06 LTS "dapper drake", I was tring to install the Linksys adapter with the ralink-rt73 installer. I got to the end of the installation process, and what came up was an error message in a blue box. I'm sorry I did not copy it down. Could I be using a faulty installer or will it just not work? Sorry if this wasnt descriptive enough.
Thank You

I was chatting with a long time Unix Admin the other day, he was saying that he had zero luck in getting Ubuntu to recognize a usb wireless network card, so it's likely that the usb system itself is lacking in support for the wireless devices.
[ Ubuntu even failed to get an internal wireless card working even with ndiswrapper, he found that PCLinuxOS at least accomplished that, without even requiring ndiswrapper ]
