Attempting to install 8.04 on a friends Compaq Presario v6000. I tried doing this with 7.10, ran into wireless issues and gave up because my friend was in the middle of the school year and needed the machine badly.

So, I have now downloaded both the 8.04 64bit and 32bit desktop ISOs. I booted into the live environment with the 64 bit cd no problem, but the wireless wasn't detected.

I have searched the forums and found a lot of info on this laptop, but it was for 6.06 and 6.10. Just wondering if anyone has had any luck with 8.04 with this computer, and what it required to get going.

Any help is greatly appreciated, I would really like to get my friend going with a great Ubuntu experience
