can't work installer

Hello im new to the fourms. I have recently built a computer and downloaded linux (as im not giving bill gates 70 for a product which just gets a lot of virus)

I have worked out how to do must things. I just can't install programs (quite important lol

have been trying to install my network ataptor
I have got to section 2.2 on this guide

grr I can't but in a ulr but it is a planex wirless GW-US54Pro there is a guide on there website

I just don't understand commmards (need to get learing) I have tryed copying the whole of "make file" and it comes back with rong comarnd or somthing. i works with just the top bit but then what do I do.

Thank you very much for your help

I am running Ubumua (can't spell it but aptrenly that was the easyest for a linux vergin.)

I have worked out most things, just not this or my mp3 player which I might as well ask while im here

I have a creatve zen micro mp3 player with new filwear version on. What program is best on linux

I'm using Ubuntu distro (which might be what you mean *Ubumua*)

I one of the things I liked about it is that it comes with 'Synaptic' installer. Go to your admin menu and select 'Synaptic' it should ask for your password.

now to get it running right you should go to 'Settings - Repositories' in here check all the boxes that say 'source'

Close that menu and click 'Reload'

your set. just click search and search for what you need. Then check it for installation and click 'Apply'

it will download the software and all needed files and install it automatically.
