    Look for a sticky in this forum related to ndiswrapper which can help you a lot
    Are you using gentoo?
    If so, gentoo is not a good distro for a newbie, look at easier alternatives like Ubuntu, SuSE or Fedora

    this thread'll be locked soon, but look at www.distrowatch.com
    probably the best distro would be ubuntu.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
