HI All
I'm not lazy I've just been using windows everyday for the last 20 years.
I'm having difficulty getting the swing of linux.
Just a few hangups blocking me.
I have xp home with a HDhomerun DTV using GB-PVR.
No problem with windows.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 first and could not get it working with my US Robotics serial modem. My main interest is the PVR so I bought Mythbuntu and installed it.
Thought it would be easier. Still have a few hangups.
I need to get the ball rolling so all suggestions are welcomed. and please PM me if you wish.
1) First problem in MYTHBUNTU I cant find places like in lucid linx. I need to get to my USB flash drive to transfer data, applications etc.

2) modem, dialup, isp. does Mythbuntu have everything needed to setup the internet connection? Should I get a serial to USB adapter for the Modem?
If not what do I need and how do I install it?

3) Does Mythbuntu have the drivers for HDHomerun already?

4)Some instructions on how to install a small simple game or two would really make a difference. I'd at least have the confidence and interest to continue.
I've got to transfer from a flash drive or DVDRW till I get online.

Not being able to get this baby online is keeping me from flying.
I'm downloading youtube vids on mythbuntu backend setup.

Thanks for your assistance.

C:\Windows\system32\ipconfig /all

.. and post the results here.
