OK, (In an attempt to become Dutch Master's new best friend, I've installed Debian 6)......
I have a few questions (unsurprisingly).
1. Debian 6 doesn't have drivers for either of my USB Wi-Fi sticks.
1. WUSB 54GC - (Black USB stick - Linksys - version 3) =
Linksys WUSB54GC v3 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT2870]
or my older stick =
2. WUSB 54GC - (Silver USB stick - Linksys - Version 1) =
Linksys WUSB54GC v1 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT73]
So, can I download them (as a .deb file) from somewhere else online
and install them manually?
(either from my Win partition, or my laptop ?)
2. I like new software (like Firefox 10 and Libre Office 3.5 and the like)
Is it easy to add new more up-to-date respositories to the std Debian
install. Without having to compile my own software?
(I'm a bit of a pragmatist, and I'm quite happy using the non-free drivers
and codecs to make my life easier).
Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
