Here's the specs; I have a PIII 450mhz w/ 458mb RAM and 40gb Hdd and functional USB ports that I got in college 14 years ago. I tried a disc run of Lubuntu 14.04 on it and it works so I installed it and the GUI and CLI all work fine. What doesn't is ndiswrapper, wine, and gimp that I found through links from here. Despite 25 years of Win/DOS experience, I had only a month of linux in college so I have NO IDEA what to do with the three programs above so I can make them and my wireless WNA3100 fully functional. I didn't even know how to start a new thread on here until I happened to find it (I think, ) and wrote this. (Actually it was the "conversations" section, not this.) I have copies of the following to help, but its a lot of reading just to get started; "The Linux Command Line", "Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting", "Linux Programming Unleashed" (1999). Any help would really be appreciated. I can only securely D/L anything from a Win 7 machine at the library as my laptops and desktops all have Win XP AND a W32.Lecna.H worm variant (Recycler) that no one else seems to care about and that's just the one I know about. (There could be others as my laptops all have at least 2-3 unmovable file sections on them which is of course suspicious.) How do I use ndiswrapper to get my WNA3100 to work, how do I install WINE to get my Windows based drivers to work with my hardware? And finally, where should they and GIMP be stored in the file tree so they aren't just randomly installed?
