edgar
Hello,

First of all i am new to ubuntu or linux, but i am trying to get the hold of it.

I have several problems installing a new driver on my laptop (dell lattitude d620 with broadcom b43xx). Found a page where a could fix the problem and tried to do my thing.
opened the terminal and tried to install the correct driver, but after a while the installer asked for the orginal cd-rom at /media/cdrom/. Here is where it goes wrong.
According to the filemanager my cdrom is called /media/edgar/ubuntu...... and my usb drive is called /media/edgar.

How can I change the cdrom from /media/edgar/ubuntu... to /media/cdrom?

Or how can I let the installer look for the files on the USB drive?

Thanks in advance for a solution.

Can you use a wired ethernet connection? Much easier...

Can you post the uri to the page with the instructions you first were using?

What do you mean by installer?
