Ok i am completely new to linux first ever install my buddy told me this would be the best start for me(mint). He has left town for the week so i cannot ask him my stupid question. My main issue is not being able to connect to the internet through my Netgear wireless WG311v3 wireless card. I have tried the terminal thing but im probally sure its just me not knowing what i am doing. I have the cd and i tried instilling from the cd the inf file and that doesnt work.
open terminal type in
sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces.
it opens a screen then i type
iface lo inet loopback
i click save then close and it gives me an error, something like couldn't create file in directory or something il write it down next time.
Im not sure if im doing it right tho
Any help for a 100% windows user would be great, and in the dumbest way possible because i dont understand linux at all.
