I think i have also managed to get my wireless netgear wg111v3 working too. So all is good and well.

I have a question which i know isnt about the original topic i started but i ask anyway.

I wanted to run tiny xp within ubuntu. what is the best program to do this? is it virtual box or is there a better one that you could recommend?
I have used virualbox quite a bit lately and found it great but I did have problems with the firewall but that is due to my in experience with it.

Pleased you got it working and found the re-install was painless.
I have no experience of virtual machines, it might be best to start another thread, or just go ahead and try virtualbox as jstephens84 suggested above.
