    Motherboard Driver

    Will I need to install the linux driver for my motherboard before installing the operating system?

    Thanks,
    Colin

    What do you have? The kernel usually comes with all the drivers

    I went onto the GeForce site and they had drivers for linux for thier motherboards, so I was just wondering if I need to install it before installing ubuntu.

    Just get your computer ready. If only Ubuntu; make sure your drive is formated. If dual boot it matters if it's Vista. In that case you have to allocate space for Ubuntu with the Vista partitioner. Then install Ubuntu. With 256 MB of memory or less; go for Xubuntu Alternate CD. You cannot boot a Ubuntu Live CD with less than 512 MB of RAM; unless you make a 500 MB /swap partition ahead of time. As for the driver; you mkight need i or 2 AFTER the installation. If you are installing in Raid; that's another matter.
