Unhappy Network connection & sound card


I was shown Ubuntu the other week by a friend encouraging me to make the 'switch'. I really would like to but am having multiple problems. I'm totally new to Linux. I Dual loaded Ubutuntu Jaunty with my current XP. Problem 1. Can't get connected to internet.I have a Belkin Wireless G+ usb adapter (F5D7051)and read that wicd is best. So removed Network manager completley and installed wicd (I think!) but wicd won't launch! Read a number of things but I just got totally lost, way over my head. Latest read out =

luke@luke-desktop:~$
I have tried to install a number of things but just found out they need to go in specific files when I thought it would work automatically! So I fear I may have 'stuff' all over the place & thus not working! How do I actually install from usb stick(I have to use laptop & usb stick for internet)?

Problem 2. After dual boot my sound has gone!
Problem 3. I can't get back to XP - 'hall.dll file missing'

I fear I may still not be ready for Linux but if anyone can help me I would be persuaded I am sure!

Thanks in advance.

Problem 2 and 3 aren't caused by Ubuntu, but they do seem to be a bit of a ball ache.

Can you do use the output of:

Code:
iwconfig
lspci|grep Net
lsmod
Then hit the wireless kill switch and type in
Code:
dmesg|tail

When you said 'kill the wireless' did you mean just pull out the usb adaptor?

I also have the additional problem now that open office won't open properly saying there is no space in 'back-up'. I have to use open off. to copy & paste the above info. So how do I clear out the back up files to allow more space?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, must have skipped over the USb part, hadn't realised you were using it. USB is slightly different. Can I have the ouput of

Code:
lsusb
please.

What is the exact error message for openoffice?

Devices 003 & 002 go when the usb adaptor is unplugged.


The open office error message is :-
"Open Office.org could not save important internal information due to insufficient free disc space a the following location:
/home/luke/.openoffice.org/3/user/backup

Please free up some space then press the retry button to try saving the date again."

I'm actually thinking of resarting again with the live cd as I can't get into Windows anymore because of missing hal.dll file and even the rescue disk doesn't work. So I imagaine if I did do this (after saving essential docs) then this would solve the problem???????



Thanks.

I re-installed Ubuntu completely forgetting dual boot plugged in my modem direct. I got sound and internet straight away (yes free of Microsoft at last!!!!).

However I still cannot get the wireless working. Do I need to install any of the updates which came into synaptic manager (the security ones updates automatically)? Any further suggestions for the wireless?

Thanks in advance
