I just installed Ubuntu - glad to be done with Vista but I dont knowhow to use LInux. I am trying to figure out if my onboard camera works. There is a post online by someone with my same computer, using HardyHeron (same as me) who says the camera works fine. But I dont know how what program to use to test it, or how to start it, or see if its set up in LInux. Can you point me in the right direction?

Its normally stored on the hard drive of the PC in the recover partition of the hard disk drive.
If you've formatted the hard drive without burning a recovery disk, you can try contacting ACER via their web site and ask for assistance. You could buy a copy of Window Vista. But if you decided you need to buy a new operating system buy Windows 7 instead, its much better than Vista.
If however you don't want to buy an operating system and be legal. Then you can download and install one of the Linux based operating systems for free. I like Ubuntu best, but there are others.
Just google Linux or go straight for Ubuntu :- http://www.ubuntu.com/
NETGEAR does not offer any offcial drivers for the adapter to work on Ubuntu as they dont support Linux OS. However, you may try third party drivers to install the adapter on Ubuntu. Try the below link:
