New 2 Linux..need help with sound card and wireless
Very new to linux...switched over because I have an old laptoppy. Compaq Presario 2100 and windows was just not working with it. I tried installing different distro's of Linux ( I was a little ballsy going with the new ubuntu, which this lap top couldnt even boot with out freezing) But I finally went with Zenwalk and its working pretty well.
I am just trying to figure everything out...but i am running into some snags.
One I can not get my laptop to play anysound,
and also i can not use my wireless card too work.
If someone could help me with my sound, youtube should be able to help me with my wireless card. To tell me how to use ndswrapper for the wireless card. I cant seem to find a good tutorial for either. at least one that is basic enough for me.
This is all the infomation that I have been able to figure out how to get...
Thank you so much anyone who decides to respond!
