Reading this forum I think maybe there should be one called "Absolute Beginner Talk-- No, Really absolute beginner talk." So please forgive the ignroance revealed by my question.
Last year I installed Edgy and took out Windows on an old PC (P486 maybe). I moved the PC and needed to connect it to a wireless network. I couldn't get the wireless adapter to work and Edgy being lost beyond redemption couldn't software to make it work.
I acquired an airlink 3026 adapter which some people say works "out of the box" with edgy and some people say doesn'. So ont he assumption that it won't work I've also downloaded and burned both the "Live" CD and the alternate of the last build. I have no data of any importance on the PC so (again based on what I can understand of what I read) I figure I might as well try a clean install.(With no internet connection going up step by step seems like a real hassle.)
OK. So which disc should I use in this situation. Since my goal is to get the airlink adapter to work is one or the other better? Are both these discs self-booting so I just insert the disc and wait for things to start happening. (Recall I have Edgy but no Windows on this unit)
Thank you! Rick
