I have a i.MX51 (arm) based system. Sharp PC-Z1 and I am
trying to get a USB Dongle WIFI working.
(The internal one died)

The usb stick is a RT2870 device and the system does have

It also has /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-15-araneo/drivers/staging/rt2870

Makefile and Kconfig

but that is all. no rt2870sta.ko etc

Is it possible I have enough on the system to complete the generation of the needed file to enable this device?

It's Ubuntu 9.04

IIRC the Netwalker uses wicd as network manager. You probably have to change its configuration as it normally looks for eth0, the internal WiFi. You have to change that to ra0 instead, options defining which interface to use as wired/wireless are in its settings.
