Ubuntu won't work... Help?
Alright. I want to switch from Windows XP to Ubuntu. I have the correct Ubuntu 7.1 disc for my 64-bit AMD processer, and I booted from cd-rom, everything started up, and it installed fine. I rebooted from the hard drive, and ubuntu started, i logged in, everything was working. Then, I tried to connect to my wireless network by clicking on the icon on the task bar, selecting my network, and entering in my WEP key. It wouldn't connect. I then tried entering the passphrase, still no dice. Then my computer froze. I rebooted, tried again, and it happened again. After a few tries of attempting to connect to my network, my computer will just start up, i'll sign in, and then it will freeze.... Should I try installing the Netgear application I was using when i had windows? or maybe Ubuntu 7.04 and upgrading to 7.1? maybe just reinstalling Ubuntu 7.1? Also, I've been told that w/ my processer, it's better to run XP or the new Mac OS... is this true, or will Ubuntu work just fine? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thnx. The Don
