The installation was a breeze anyway, installed away itself after i rebooted, had to download the older version of wubi -> 7.10 to install Ubuntu 7.10.

After the installation, i noticed in the Network Manager thingy, there was no wireless connections listed, i tried creating one manually putting in the WEP Key, turning dhcp on, but no avail.

Must be a problem with drivers for my broadcom adapter, maybe i need to install them manually.

Another problem is that the maximum resolution i can choose is 800x600, which sucks balls.

Here was me thinking ubuntu was easier than windows to setup!

Looks like commands are the only way ill get this OS working!

7.10 had way too many problems, I reckon due to a lot of major version changes of a lot of core underlying software.

Wait for the next one.

Wifi isn't showing up in NM because of the driver most likely. Broadcom are shit for open sourcing their chips - bcm43xx is now in the kernel btw, or there's the ndiswrapper option. Intel are the way to go for wifi.

Try ctrl + alt + '+' or '-' to change resolution up or down.

Wait for the new Ubuntu I still reckon.

Yea ill wait alright. Unintstalled her from windows, it did it in 2 seconds very cleanly i have to say.

I doubt the keyboard shortcuts would of worked because it only showed 2 available resolutions in the administrators control panel.
