Hi all;

Just got Ubuntu 8.04.1 yesterday. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to

Linux in general (not even sure of the syntax for the shells) so I was hoping

for general tips on getting started and specifically how to start accessing the

internet using Ubuntu. I'm fine using ethernet connections at university but at

home I'm trying to use a Speedtouch 330 USB modem and I can't get the

drivers working. I tried just using the installation CD that came with it but the CD

wouldn't even execute. Any suggestions would be great
