so after not being able to get my existing wireless to connect in hardy i'm going to install a edimax ew-7318ug (http://http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_detail.php?pd_id=3&pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44) adapter

i've downloaded the ralink driver for the 2501 usb flavor from here (http://http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html)-

my problem is i am using my roommates vista machine - my laptop is unable to connect to anything - so is it as simple as burning the file from this vista machine and loading the cd into my ubuntu machine

my question then is what is the method to my solution

thanks
