You *could* have jusr edited the original post. Or added a second post
to the same thread. I merged them. No need for two of those diverting
energy ....



Cheers,

You can just download a kernel from kernel.org and compile the kernel from scratch, google for a tutorial

Assuming that from Ubuntu you can access your Windows drive(s), simply download it in Windows, copy it over to the Linux drive (When booted into it), then go from there. Ubuntu should be able to read NTFS right off.

Although, what kind of a card is it, wired, or wireless?

Just to be clear... you'd visit the repo with a browser in windows and download the deb file for your version of Ubuntu.

The other approach, of course, is to borrow a dailup modem or buy a cheap network card.

How come you're unable to connect to the net from
Ubuntu on the same machine when windows can? What
network hardware are you using?

according to the specs that board has the following NIC..

Quote:
The Intel 82566DC Gigabit Ethernet Controller supports the following features:
• PCI Express link
• 10/100/1000 IEEE 802.3 compliant
From the looks of things it requires the typical Intel Pro 1000 driver (e1000 module if I recall), which is either not being loaded automatically or he needs a newer version that what is on his system.

modprobe e1000

Is the card listed properly when you use lspci ? if not you may need to update the pci.ids file as well so the interface is detected properly..

I think that pretty much spells it out.

Probably you can just double-click the icon... did you try that?
Otherwise, check that the working directory is the same as the place where the deb file resides, and check that you spelled the name of the deb file correctly.

When I double click icon it gives a error message and the install package is grayed out.
i think that i ran the command correctly.
what other options left?

If windows is on the box, and the NIC works in Windows. why not download the pciids file to a floppy or usb flash drive, then boot into Linux and replace it...
