I would like to Install Ubuntu 7.1 Gutsy on my computer however I had some worries about doing so. I have read all of the information on NDI swapper and I am having some trouble getting it to work in my laptop (my first attempt with Ubuntu) I am using a WUSB54G from Linksys and I have downloaded the suggested drivers to use with NDI. Also, I had some questions about my mainboard, a VIA k8t800. The windows drivers come with a special boot disk because the motherboard has some special needs for use with windows.
The via site states:
Windows Pre-OS installation Floppy Disk (F6 Installation)
Under Windows 2000 and later OS, while user intends to install OS on the disk attached on the RAID controller, they have to prepare a floppy driver disk including the pre-OS installation files and press “F6” while boot CD is starting.
Is this necessary for Ubuntu?
I basically would like to beable to be sure that if I install Ubuntu on my desktop computer I will at least have internet access. Suggestions?
