Whenever I try to download rt2x00 drivers ([urlykh6ai4e]http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Rt2x00_GIT_instructions[/urlykh6ai4e]), at the step where it asks me to clone a copy of the master repository, it displays the following error when I attempt to download it

[codeykh6ai4e]root@bt:~# git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ivd/rt2x00.git rt2x00
Initialized empty Git repository in /root/rt2x00/.git/
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I've updated my system beforehand, and I've also checked to make sure git-core is installed as well... it is.
I'm running Back|Track 5, and my card is a RT5390 (part of the rt2800 family).
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
