Hello,

Thanks in advance for any help. I'm a windows user and have no experience at all with linux.

I decided to install Ubuntu 9.04 on two of my old systems, I'll go through the first one first (but I seem to be having the same problem with both)

I can't get Ubuntu to recognize my usb network adapters. When I boot with the adapters in, the startup bar stops 1/4 of the way through and the system crashes. (I'm using generic brand adapters, 3com 3CRWE254G72 being the one for this computer)

I installed NDISWRAPPER to install the windows drivers. However when Windows Wireless Drivers is launched, all it displays is a blank screen.

This is being installed on an HP Pavillion.

another thing I thought I should point out, I have the computer set to dual boot win xp, and the adapter is working just fine with that
