I'm disappointed that you went with Ubuntu rather than Mint. Did you do the full install to the hard drive or did you install it inside Windows? Which drivers are you trying to install & how are you trying to install them?

Hi Jam,
I did the full installation in the separate HD, and i tried to install all drivers for hardware & including different utilities. Right now the question is that whenever I try to install all hardware driver from the MOBO cd, the red caution sign pops in the screen by saying the An error ocurred while loading the archive.

Linux is not like Windows. You do not need to load drivers from the motherboard CD. In fact, drivers *usually* don't have to be loaded at all (they're installed automatically along with the OS), but if they are, they can generally be found in the package manager. The drivers you have are most likely for Windows anyway. What isn't working properly...sound, video, network, wireless?

Hi Jam,
But how about internet surfing, dvd software; they are no working at all.

Almost any software you need is downloadable thru the package manager but you need to be connected to the internet. What are you saying you need drivers for...network card or wireless?

How about posting your complete system specs...CPU, board, RAM, video, etc, etc? I don't think you've ever supplied that info.

OK, it helps to know your hardware configuration but which drivers are you looking for? If it's for the modem, you're going to have problems. A "soft modem" (aka Winmodem) is designed to work with Windows, not Linux. It can be done, but it's not easy. You'd be better off getting an external hardware modem that connects to the serial port...they're easier to configure & generally work much better.

Hi jam,
You say..." It can be done but it's not easy....Would you please clarify to me this matter? If I get the external modem that be costfull anyway...isn't it?
Lastly, you mentioned in your one of the posting that Linux mint is better than Ubuntu and it provides more additional software, but how do I get Linux Mint?

"It can be done but it's not easy....Would you please clarify to me this matter?"

I posted a link in my other response, I assumed you would look into it. Like I said, WINmodems are made for WINdows. Only a few PCI modems will work in Linux but only after jumping thru a bunch of hoops to get drivers configured (IF you can find them). Serial port modems are "hardware modems" & don't need drivers...you just connect it, turn it on, configure a few settings & you're good to go.

"If I get the external modem that be costfull anyway...isn't it?"

I don't know where you're from but used external 56k serial port modems sell for about $10 around here. And it must be a "serial port" modem, not USB.

"how do I get Linux Mint?"

Didn't we go thru this already? Go to the Mint website & download the ISO file for Mint 9. Then use a program such as ImgBurn to burn it to a CD.
