Hello, my son asked me to put an Ubuntu partition on his Alienware M14X but when I run off of the CD for 10.04 64 bit, Ubuntu cannot find the ethernet or wireless cards. Has anyone else encountered and resolved this issue? I am more experienced with lower end machines than anything like this.

TIA

You will probably have better results with Ubuntu 11.10. Old OS, new hardware, bad combo.

Thank you. I'll try that first.
