I'm trying out Linux. I am totally new to Linux and decided to go with Ubuntu as most suggest that as a starting point.
I installed it on a USB pen drive [version 10.04] using the method given on their site. And I'm currently running off the USB.
I have Creative X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB sound card and have no clue on how to get it working. Could someone please guide me to get this working.
Would love to switch to linux but hesitant to install onto the HDD if I cant get drivers to work correctly.
Check that out. Shouldn't be too difficult to follow, even for a beginner. The guide is for 8.04/9.04, but the process shouldn't have changed. Try that, and if you have any questions or issues (errors, etc.) then post here and let us know.
