Xandros 3.0.1 on a Laptop Lg LW60


Have installed Xandros 3.0.1 on my laptop, a " Lg-LW60 ", but there are no system drivers for anything. (Audio, Volume control, etc.) does someone know id I can download those drivers somewhere?

How do I install programs from other sources (eg CR ROMs from Computer magazines).
I have been trying "Sesu 10" and there was an application that installed programs from the disks that came with it, but also there not from any other sources.

Was trying the program "Wine" as it suppose to be a crossover platform from windows (if I not misunderstood the concept). I was trying to run some professional programs (quite old they were using vbrun300,dll files) but no success.

Is it someone there who can help me with those questions?

Cheers Alf

Your trying to do Linux like Windows. I would get used to Linux first. All the drivers for sound, video etc will be installed. Try to find a tutorial for Xandros somewhere. Maybe the Xandros homepage. What's Xandros based on? Debian? Whatever it is, check out tutorials for that as well.
