I thought just for a change i would try out linux ubuntu, now the only problem that I would have is not being able to use my wireless internet using the built in wireless on my dell inspiron 6400 laptop. Now I have the driver downloaded and ready to use, however I have no i dea how you install the things because it is a lot more difficult than windows or mac.

The file is a .tgz
Now can anyone please help me how I use the file and install it correctly so that I will be able to go on my wireless broadband succesfully
