Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok, so, I got Ubuntu from WUBI, everything is in working order...
I'm still pretty sketchy about Linux, its different, but I'm enjoying the learning process.
at first Ubuntu didnt recognize my keyboard, and the mouse had an attitude, but after 'manually' restarting my computer everything is in working order
Getting back to the point, normally when I use Linksys, I plug the adapter in, windows finds the driver, and everything is good, but this isnt windows, so I dont really even know where to start from...
It's possible you could just plug it in and it could work. Or it's possible (though unlikely) that it's unsupported in linux. Most likely it'll fall somewhere in the middle and you'll need to do a little bit of fiddling to get it to work.
I'm not a bunch of help since I don't have any wireless cards, but a quick google for "ubuntu WUSB54Gv4" turned up this and other things as well. You might just try plugging it in and see what happens (try using the network manager tool).
If that fails, you probably need to use ndiswrapper, but I don't have much experience. Basically, I think what it does is allow you to utilize the driver for Windows.
I don't know what "number" you're referring to, but lsusb is a command, so open a terminal window, type "lsusb" (without the quotes) and hit Enter.

Mount your Windows partition under Linux and then you'll be able to copy (or move) the file. If you need help with mounting, post the output of "/sbin/fdisk -l" (that's a lowercase L and again, no quotes).
