Kubuntu and wireless
I am 100% new to linux, and I have a live CD for Kubuntu 9.04. My computer is a compaq presario v500 laptops and runs windows xp (for now at least). My laptop has a built in wireless ability which works fine in windows, but I cannot get it to turn on in linux (I have tried knoppix and kubuntu). What do I have to do to enable my wireless so I can access the internet in kubuntu? Please write any responses is idiot terms, because this is the first day I have evere tried using any linux program, so I know little to nothing about how to configure ANYTHING. Thanks in advance!
