Let's start with just the basics:

In a terminal window (applications/accessories/terminal):

type

lspci

and press enter. Copy/paste the output from that back in a reply here.

Do the same for the following:

lsusb


Both of these will return a little more information that what we will need, but it's best to have too much than too little and have to ask for more.

We'll see if we can help after you post the above back here.

Dave :)

The only real choice you have for a video driver is to go openchrome and get their driver. The S3 unichrome pro is the exact same thing I had on a laptop a few years ago, and driver support is spotty. You need to start with the driver, then work in xorg.conf to make changes. When you are ready to try to change xorg.conf, after installing the driver, post back.

Your wireless is the ubuiquitous Broadcom 4318. There are MANY post on this forum for getting it working, using either the restricted b43 driver or using ndiswrapper and a windows driver.

Try reading through this link:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=507505&highlight=gateway+mx3215

even though it's not for your computer, the wireless and video are the same. If you decide to use ndiswrapper as mentioned in the thread (it was written back for 7.04) then you will also need to add the b43 module to the blacklist file.

After you read through that and some of the threads for getting both the unichrome pro and the BCM4318 working, if you still have
questions or problems please post back.
