I just built a new computer from the ground up and installed Ubuntu 12 as the OS from a flash drive connected to the mother board. It boots up and run fine and I can get around the internet but nothing else works. I can't boot anything from the cd/dvd drive, any sort of download doesn't execute and I can't install any sort of drivers I find on the internet. Also, where is the command line (windows jargon I know). I'm not even sure my chipset/bios/network drivers have been updated. How, where, what, when...etc etc. Where do I go from here? Not the way I imagined my linux experience to start out...oy!
