I had asked here for some wireless help a couple of weeks ago, and I've since moved closer to solving my problem. I learned that I had a Texas Instruments ACX 111 chipset, and that it wasn't compatible with Linux from this:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~ lspci

02:0f.2 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments PCI4451 IEEE-1394 Controller

I was also told that I could install native Linux drivers from http://acx100.sourceforge.net/

Before I go ahead and install Ubuntu, though, I wanted a second opinion. Will this fix my wireless issues? It's all that's been keeping me from installing Ubuntu.

How could I install the drivers without the being connected to the Internet on my Ubuntu machine?
