  3. lol thanx, i will report the findings back in say...30 mins? thanks again. ps - i will have to download them files on xp coz obviously, there is no internet setup on the linux. thanx
  4. michaelcole, like i said, i am new on linux and you cant just expect me to do that in one hit...sorry. I'll have to go with what greg2 said. So greg2, what is a "terminal or (konsole, if you're using KDE)"? I have no idea what it is. How do I open it? Thanks, and sorry for me being so dumb lol. On XP im just fine, but linux, like I said...im new =)
  5. So all i want to do is to be able to use the internet on my linux operating system - Mandriva. Whenever I go into the 'hardware' page, it has my wireless network card there, however, when I try to set up a wireless network connection with it, it is not an option for the hardware to choose from. The only thing it picks up is my onboard wired LAN. I have tried installing with the drivers but it just says 'there is no device that supports this driver'. What can I do? Plese, I am a newbie at Linux and I need full guided steps. I keep getting told to update ndiswrapper and try again - what the hell is that? how do i update? installation instructions?. Please, detailed instructions. I have a netgear WG311 wireless network card. Thanks again, anything is much appreciated
