so, i have been wanting to try ubuntu for a while now. finally got my hands on a computer that was worthless and needed formatting and whatnot so i figured now is the time to try it. Problem is, the cd drive wont work now. it opens and closes, but i have no way of opening the file. in the menu under drives i get the hard drive and floppy (which is completely disconnected on the computer) but no cd or usb either. trying to get my usb wireless installed which according to the ubuntu site should be compatible. anybody have any ideas?
