SATA

Where can i find a list of SATA hard and optical drives that are compable with ubuntu 7.04?

Optical Mouse not working

When i loaded 7.04 my optical mouse does not work. No even a light shows on the mouse. Is there a solution to fixing the mouse problem? Should various mouse setups not come standard with Ubuntu?

Book

 What book will teach me 7.04 stuff?Thanks

Got

I got my free 7.04 cd in the mail saturday, and I bought a $30 'puter from goodwill. i got the net up on this using linux. I am still learning and installing stuff. Much cheaper than an MS machine with Vista.

Thanks Ubuntu!

New to Ubuntux

Is there an equipment list for Ubuntux? Or is it pretty much standard?

Thanks
