wlan with debian and medion akoya E1210

Want to install linux for a friend.
First try Ubuntu because the better hardwaresupport,
but have big problems with wlan. Wants only the password for wpa again and
again, but no connection.

Then installed debian 6.0 from dvd. At this time, wlan not found by debian.
Download the ralink firmware, put it on a usb stick and installed it with gdebi.
After reboot wlan works fine.
