Hello, folks. I am supremely new to linux. I downloaded and installed for the first time the other day, and I went with Ark Linux alpha10, as I've heard it's easy for newbies to work with. However, my only means of internet connection is via linksys USB 802.11b wi-fi. I've downloaded wlan, but I have no idea how to install it, or even which of the many files I downloaded I should be using.

I know nothing about linux, but I want to try it out. Could someone possibly give me some kind of walkthrough entailing what all I have to do to get my USB wi-fi working? Internet connectivity is my only concern at this point, because I don't want to be running around to different computers everytime I want to check e-mail or log into my online courses for college.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give.

You can try these instructions.

Here is a project site for that device. Here is the latest CVS snapshot from that site (as of when this message is posted).
