i found the realtek HD drivers for my laptop, off the realtek website so i downloaded the ones for kernel version 2.4.......(obviously im blindly clicking) hopefully those are it. I got them on my desktop i open the file and read the readme and.........HUH???? so linux doesnt have a double-click install exe thingy? wud be most appreciate if i could get some help, as its the only thing not installed :-)

Cheers

Realtek HD?
You dont need drivers, Linux comes with them all... Besides, the 2.4 kernel is _old_ as! Ubuntu's running a nice shiney new 2.6 kernel :)

Specifically, is something not working?
