follow the thread - download the files with the connection you're using now , put them on usb , burn your CD ; print the instructions .... no more internet connection needed

Ok but i'm at work and i'm with Windows now.Where i can download files without apt-get?Thread says this

1. Boot using PC (Intel x86) alternate install CD for Ubuntu or Kubuntu.
2. Start text mode installer and install Ubuntu/Kubuntu.
3. Finish Install and reboot.
4. Update package list and upgrade any packages needed.
Code:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

5. Install fglrx closed source driver for ATI video cards.
Code:

sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx

6. Update loaded modules.
Code:

sudo depmod -a

7. Configure /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Code:

sudo aticonfig --initial
sudo aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv

8. Reboot

First i must install it without alternate CD from command line.I will download fglrx drivers with Windows but i don't know how.If the drivers are in USB flash or CD what is the commands for install them directly from CD or flash?

just download the files you need stick them on a usb, burn an ALTERNATE install CD - print the guide - you're good to go... ps follow it carefully and use a clean and healthy drive for the ati driver - its a very sensitive graphics driver and needs to be perfect

yeah just get your drivers downloaded and skip the first few steps start where the guide says


your computer will now boot into your installed ubuntu system - without your graphics installed , you will be met by some code and a screen that will flash for 10 seconds or so, when its stopped flashing

press Alt and F2

login prompt: enter your username and password as instructed

enter the following code:

I'm quite new to Ubuntu. I've followed the guide (with little modifications/shortcuts) to install/reinstall Ubuntu on my R60plus many time. I've encounter the white screen nearly every time. I think the ati installer failed to enable the driver. To enable it yourself first login Gnome in safe mode. Then goto System -> Admin -> Hardware driver. Check enable ATI driver and reboot. It worked the 8.4 and 8.5 but might not work with 8.8 version of ati driver
