Want to turn to Ubuntu, but ........


I want to turn to Ubuntu, but when I install it using Ubuntu CD,
It is found that Ubuntu can not identify my netcard (Intel Pro 10/100),
Can not identify by sound card, Even it can not identify my video card.
Anyone has a simple introduction on how to install these hardware drivers?

Can you be more specific about the problem? What exactly do you mean when you say that your devices aren't identified? Can you post the output of running "/sbin/lspci" and "lsmod" (no quotes) in a terminal please?

Also, please use descriptive thread titles in future, i.e. ones that say something about the problem you're having.

Yeah it would be good if you could be more specific. And also if you could tell the version of the Ubuntu you used. Jaunty 9.04 is the latest.
Intel Pro 10/100 is this wireless card?
Output of lspci and lsmod commands would also give information on your hardware and what modules are loaded.

Maybe some distros put it in a different place. Try running lspci as root.
