Hi all,

Firstly, I am completely new to Linux so please go easy on me!

I managed to get Ubuntu installed on my machine and was really chuffed with myself

Unfortunately I have no idea how to install new software etc, I know it is something to do with the terminal thing but I have no idea about commands etc.

The main thing I would like to do is to get my wireless USB stick (above) working so I can access the internet. Ubuntu does not automatically recognise it and it seems to have no power, no lights etc.

Does anyone have a dummies guide in how to install software and then install my USB Stick so I can connect to the internet?

My USB Stick is a BELKIN F5D7051.

I really hope someone can help because I want to really get stuck in to this new OS and to learn Linux!
