Ok, finally got the AMD64 version of Ubuntu 8.04 installed on my 
laptop.  Surprisingly, the drivers for my laptop's 802.11g adapter were 
with the initial install, at least that's what the Hardware Drivers 
screen says anyway.  However, I can't find any way of configuring a 
wireless connection to our router.  It uses WEP.  Do I need to connect 
to the router via Ethernet to download an wireless configuration program 
from Add/Remove Programs?  Otherwise everything works but the Desktop 
Effects.  Hardware Drivers says the Nvidia drives are installed but not 
in use and Desktop Effects can't be enabled.  I'm more concerned with 
the wireless adapter at this point, but being able to use the zoom and 
inverse color options for accessibility purposes would be nice too.
