USB and network/internet problem
for the past couple of months i have been running Mandriva 2009 powerpack virtually using virtualbox under a windows vista host OS. Ive enjoyed it so much(it runs faster virtually with 2gb ram than windows does normally with 4gb ram) that a couple of days ago i decided to uninstall windows and install mandriva as my host OS. the install went fine however now i am unable to connect to the internet wirelessly(its a notebook) and when i try to transfer the driver files(windows version) and wine via a flash drive from another computer, it doesnt the new flash device has been plugged in. I am kind of new to linux so any help would be great!
my specs are:
-Hp pavilion dv7 1245-dx notebook
-dual core 2.1ghz amdlon turion 64 processor
-mandriva linux 2009 spring powerpack 64-bit
-4gb ddr2 533mhz ram
-ATI radeon 3200 HD Graphics card
btw it says there is a wireless driver installed but it still isnt working, also the flash drive is formatted FAT32
thx in advance for any replies!
