    netbook & external optical drive

    I have pre-installed ubuntu-8.04 on a netbook (no oprical drive). If I want to use an
    external usb optical drive do I simply insert it in the usb port or I have to install some software packages. If the latter what will it be and which repository contains it?
    Thanks.
    P.Rudra.

    Just stick it in already. Sure, theres software for that.

    You should upgrade to the latest & greatest. The Ubuntu experience gets better each release and 8.04 is some time ago.
    What? I'm not allowed to say fsck? Then how is i supposed to help people fix their filesystems?
