Re: a little help with linux

I have/had one that I tried. The probs that I'm having are getting the driver installed. I'm a noob and not really sure what to even type. I've tried make and it does things but kicks back an error. This is the reason that I ask if anyone was on an IM and can maybe help.

The best advice for you is to just throw out whatever screwy wireless
hardware you have that apparently requires you to compile and install some
cockamamie drivers.  Chalk it off as a learning experience.  Go back to
Google, and find a wireless card that's been natively supported by the
modern Linux kernel for at least a year now, buy it, plug it in, and have
everything Just Work™.

There are plenty of wireless cards out there with native Linux support.
