Cant install linksys router in unbuntu, lost windows restore cd
So, last night I got a package of Unbuntu live and install Cd's. I ran down to my room, popped in the live CD, and liked it.
Tried to figure out this partition thing, and was having a lot of trouble when installing unbuntu on a partition, so I gave up, and just let it erase everything on my hard drive.
So, now I have Unbuntu. Popped in the linksys CD to install the drivers for my wireless router, and nothing happened. After looking into it, I found out why. Linux doesn't run ".exe". The setup on the CD is an exe.
I looked into how to remedy this. I found wine. All I had to do was go to this one site and download it from my linux box. One problem, I cant install router to get internet in the first place.
I decided to just go back to windows for now. So, I get the restore CD, and see it says "2 Of 2". Hm, where is "1 Of 2"? I popped the CD in, and get an error every time. It aborts, opens the tray, and restarts.
I have no idea what to do now. I guess I need the first disk to restore my computer, but I don't have it. The only solution I can think of for now is to install my wireless router, and use linux. But I need to know how. Can anyone help me?
