connecting to the internet
Thank you for answering my question. As always this has lead to more qustions. So to answer these:
I am wanting to use it (Lynux) to see what it looks and performs like.
I did have windows and wiped it from my hard disk and will reinstall windows at some point in the future when I have experienced the Linux system (I also have a Laptop which has windows installed on it so I can use that ).
I am (when Windows was installed) normally connected to the internet using a wireless router which is conected to a Broadband modem. I canot connect using an ethernet so need to use the wireless system.
Linksys is the name of the wireles card that is installed in my desktop pc, my ISP is Virgin media.
