Okay, I am ready to try Linux for the third time.
Long story short, I tried Linux two times before. Recently, I gave up because I could not get my machine online. To me, that was the most important because I figured if I get it online, the rest I learn while I surf the web on Linux.
I want to try again, but am going to be a real newb here. Can someone help me and walk me through getting online? Now, I ask that you treat me like a retard and explain step by step. I just built a new system and want to start using Linux on a dual boot partition.
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
BFG nForce Ultra Mobo
CorsairXMS PC3200 2048
Seagate Sata 250 7200
Saitek Gamer Keyboard
Belkin Pre-N Desktop Card http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProdu...duct_Id=186931
Any help you guys have is greatly appreciated. I have all the other Linux resources guides bookmarked, but would also appreciate any you may have.
I also have six other machines, two of which are wired, but I like to learn and read on the one in my room. Otherwise I would just plug in on the other ones since wired connections are no problem in getting on.
Edit: I want to try Linux so bad, that if I need to get another card I will. I just want to get one that I know works for sure and is capable of WPA2.
