OK .. new to Linux ... pretty experienced in Windows ... really looking forward to running it. Messing with Ubuntu (Feity) on one dekstop and liking it so far ..., tried to load it (using live cd) on my Dell E1505 laptop. It blew up during he load on the WiFi card. A friend suggested I try Mint .. said he liked it a little better and thought it was a good starting platform. Since the Laptop is the primary machine my Wife uses I'd like to make this as simple as possible.
OK .. so ... I am running off the live CD right now on that laptop, using a hardwire network .. that seems to work fine. Can somebody tell me what I need to do to get my WiFi working?
