    Ok so if you guys didn't know, ubuntu has been a wireless networking hell for me. But i am going to give it another try. Right now i am burning Ubuntu 8.10 on a CD. i am going to boot it but not install it yet. I think i am having issuses with wireleszs duo to installing it via wubi.

    But i was wondering is it possible to get internet automatically when booted from live cd?

    The reason you didn't "get internet" is because there wasn't a driver for your card.

    Either go get another card or go get a driver. We've been over this before.

    What? Off-topic and untrue.

    Explain.

    I've just begun to use Linux , don't have much of a clue how to use it or what I'm doing it yet , but I definitely don't call it a fail.

    If I have my drivers can I save them to a flash drive and then boot up Linux and put the drivers into the driver folder or do I have to find a ported version of my driver?

    Linux is not for the end user and it will never be. The ideals that it holds true to itself are completely contradictory to the fundamental basics of an end user operating system.

    Firstly, answer this, what do you intend to use linux for?

    1. There is no "drivers folder".
    2. If by ported you mean one that was designed for Linux, yes.

    I won't go into why i don't like linux because it is off-topic, but thanks for caring about my opinion

    also for ubuntu 8, if you try to virtual machine it, it might not work, the update in the kernel makes it incompatible with many virtualization programs like VmWare Fusion and Parallels.
