Ubuntu Help


Recommended Posts

Ok, I am about to install Ubuntu on my new laptop but have a few questions. I have a wireless network card to recieve wireless internet via laptop. Will that work with Ubuntu? Also will I be able to make it so I can view my downloaded files on my main computer? Like I had stuff downloaded and I used ot be able to share the folder so that my laptop could view them and edit etc. Will I be able to do all this? I am just wondering because I want to know before I go any further.

I have had trouble installing wireless card drivers on a couple of different linux distros.  I am not very familiar with Ubuntu.  The best luck I had was with Mandriva.  You can use the HardDrake utility to install precompiled drivers, or use it to install the drivers using a Windows NDIS wrapper from the driver CD.

You can get the latest release of Mandriva from the official site http://www.mandriva.com/en/download or get the ISO torrent from this site: http://club.mandriva.com/xwiki/bin/KB/BitTorrent (you may need to join first)
