hello,
I put UnButu Linux on a friend's IBM Thinkpad 600E laptop. However there is one problem:

No one can access the web.


Is there a driver I can download for this and if so, where is it located? If there is not a driver download, how do I do this?


Help,
Jesse

Also, what exactly does it say when you try and access? Do you get error messages, package missing messages or wrong configuration messages. Without any of this info, it would be hard to advise which way to go.
If someone tells you to su rm -rf /
DON'T DO IT!!!!
Be in the know, Bash smart!

Well it didn't have ANY internet access to start with. I put Linux on there hoping I could get it online. What I am wondering is if there is a driver I need to install on the IBM to get my client online...

How did youwant to access the net? DSL Cable or dialup. All the software you need should be incorporated into the OS. Except maybe the dialup modem software.

Have you been able to install you NIC in Ubuntu Linux? When setting up the NIC it should allow you to setup your connection.
