In the menuconfig I go to Device Drivers ->Network Device Support->Wireless LAN, but I don't see anything about the rt2x00 driver. Same thing goes for Device Drivers->Network Device Support->Wireless LAN. Am I blind or is there some other reason I'm not seeing it available to enable.? Even the .config kernel file doesn't have anything like RT2X00 for me to uncomment.
General Setup ->
 Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers
 Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211)
Device Drivers ->
Network device support ->
 Ralink driver support
That will display the list of available rt2x00 drivers.
