After you install ubuntu make sure that you click onto the two computers icon, next to the clock, in the top right corner of the screen and select enable networking. Also make sure the internet is hooked up to the computer before you turn on the computer that will help.

I am trying to download Ubuntu 13.10 from the DVD disk I got out of the Ubuntu Unleashed book I bought, and it keeps getting stuck on "configuring bcmwl-kernel-source" why is this happening, and what

Although it is nice to get a DVD in a book with the OS that you are reading about the only drawback is that the version of Ubuntu you are working with is 1 version behind the most current version. Since you have internet connection I would suggest downloading the lastest version and installing that.

If you are only installing to play around and learn use
Ctrl-Alt-F2 sudo kill -9 (pid of process 'modprobe wl')

That will move on to the next step in the installation process and should allow you to get everything installed.

How can we have a free OS for my laptop.

There are a large number of OSes which are available for free on the internet . Most of them are linux based , with each having a slightly different interface and a different method to install programs (also referred to as package management) . They are popularly referred to as linux distros. Depending on how old your laptop is, and you requirements, you can choose an appropriate distro . For laptops which have been bought within 3-4 years , UBUNTU ( is a good choice . For new linux users LinuxMint ( is a good option with lots of settings and applications preconfigured . In case it is a old machine and will be mainly used for internet surfing and web based applications then a netbook OS like Joli OS is a good option. These OS offer fast boot times and good web compatibility .
To install any these , you can go to the website and download the OS and burn it to a CD/DVD . Some of these OS can be directly installed without the need to burn a CD . You can also try out these OS without installing . This is called Live-Boot .
I hope this answers your question .

I have ubuntu with windows(dual os) and there is siffy broadband internet in windows, and i want to share this internet with can i do so

There is no sharing involved. You have dual OS installed but you can only use one at any time so nothing is shared.

Just set up your internet connection in Ubuntu as if it were the only OS you had.

Hello Sir,

I am sure your system meets the normal requirement for installing and using the Ubuntu OS. So you dont have to worry about the system speed and perfomance. I have also sent you the link to download the latest version of Ubuntu OS 10.4 from the original website. All you need to do is download it and burn that image file using nero or any image burning software to the dvd and boot the dvd in your system and install it.
