I need to download Debian.I have a few questions though, not related to this particular question, I just don't want to bother making new threads for easy questions.
1. My biggest problem is my needing to get wireless access for myself. Well, I have a USB wireless NIC (WUSB54G is the device), and it doesn't seem to ever want to work with ndiswrapper, at least it didn't want to work with Ubuntu when I had it installed. Would http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833320003
this then plug into my ethernet and allow my ethernet which is recognized easily (realtek onboard, c'mon everybody's computer has it) to operate via the wired setup as far as the distro is concerned?
2. My keyboard acts weird to me. When I am in the bios and doing the start up jockeying, my keyboard likes to stop responding. Won't light up, or anything. Works fine in the startup screen checking ram and works fine getting me into the bios menu and boot options, but after selecting boot options when I boot either a specific hard disk or try ot boot cd, sometimes it will just go dead, and I'll have to reset and try again and after a couple tries I'll bave keyboard access. Any thoughts? It's my oldschool HP keyboard from back when I thought my 700Mhz Celeron and 192MB of SDRAM were cool.
I'm gonna download Sarge tonight hopefully and get it burned. I'm not gonna deal with anymore of it till tomorrow though. Any other recommendations on distro's? My friend is REALLY pushing Debian, but I'd be up for trying another as well.
