But how do you get into the machine to do the initial configuration? I mean,
setting the WiFi network ID and password? I'm guessing that this has to be
done before it can be used. You say that you originally used it with windows.
What I am interested in knowing is "do we need a windoze machine to configure
it?" or can we take one out of the box, fresh from the factory and set it up
using just Kubuntu?
