I'm still relatively new to ubuntu so all how to's suggested need to be in step by step format

I installed ubuntu via wubi (which rocks btw) and am now dual booting vista and ubuntu on my hp dv5z-1000 laptop

i'd use ubuntu more, i just have three problems that cause my laptop not to be quite as mobile as i'd like it to be

prob #1-
wifi not working
atheros AR5007 b/g wifi adapter (restricted driver installed)
i have no clue how to get the card active and connected to networks

no audio-
IDT hi-def audio
tried alsa mixer, no sounds heard-
flash videos, mp3s on hdd, only thing heard was silence

according to the cpu widget in the top panel,
cpu frequency scaling is not supported on a Turion 64 x2 rm-70

any fixes for anything above?

Just out of curiosity which widget are you using to see if cpu frequency scaling is supported?

What do you see for your freq scaling with:

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies

right mouse on menu bar > add to panel > cpu frequency monitor

Explain, you make no sense here.

follow that path and drag the cpu freq scaling monitor onto the panel. The message i get is that frequency scaling is not supported.

Now, i'd like help resolving the audio and wifi issue also
