I'm running Edubuntu Dapper Drake (6.10) on a Macintosh Powerbook  
400Mhz G3 (Pismo). It sees my Belkin USB wireless adapter, but won't  
network. The same adapter works fine in OS X and OS 9. I've activated  
it, but I don't know what else I need to do. Here is the output of  

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

I don't know how to set the nickname. It's not an option under OS X  
or 9, and I was never asked under Edubuntu, it just showed up.
