You can't use wpa_supplicant with the rt2570 driver. This driver can
only use private commands to do WPA, via iwpriv.

Normally, the network configuration tool from Mandriva writes the
correct iwpriv commands for old-style Ralink drivers and WPA in the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-rausb0 configuration file

But rt2570 and rt61 drivers were not listed to require such tricks and
Mandriva Linux 2007.0, please apply the following patch on the
/usr/lib/libDrakX/network/connection/wireless.pm file
http://svn.mandriva.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/soft/drakx/branches/2007.0/perl-install/network/connection/wireless.pm?r1=62764&r2=65484&view=patch

After reconfiguration of your interface, the correct iwpriv commands
for WPA should appear in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-rausb0
