If Kubuntu installs without a glitch I would personally go for the CD install, but if you are unable to get the CDs... hmmm

I think that anyone in this forum would have to admit, that in 95% of the cases, there is no way that one could, in a few hours, have the whole house solution set up and running, with media center, security, telecom etc...If you only use proven supported equipment, then sure, no problem, if however you decide to toss in a GeForce 8400GT or use the 0710Beta3, then you should not expect to be able to do this.
I don't know if LMCE can use an NTFS drive, but I'm guessing that as long as the OS can handle the file system (and I believe that 0710 can, even in read/write mode) then it shouldn't make any difference. The pnp is triggered off the fact that it is a new USB device arriving, and it should determine the file system type on its own and mount it like any other.LMCE 0710 should be able to use the NTFS disc, until then 0704 can read from NTFS, but not write to it, therefore you can not use the external disk with a 0704 install
I am totally new to this world and totally unskilled, nevertheless I decided to move from Windows to Linux
and try to set everything up ...
Btw, the orbiter start from KDE isn´t successful, I guess it depends on the network problem, am I right ?
Could you copy/paste the output of the "sudo ifconfig -a" command in here, so we can have a look.On the KDE "bar" there should be a "terminal" (quite easy to find), run that and input the command Zaerc mentioned. Also, cut'n'paste doesn't use the same key combinations that Windows uses, so if you are (as you claim) unfamiliar you can use the same "right click" then "copy".
also does it automatically download movie posters and info for my movie collection.As long as Amazon carries it it should pick it up, but it's not a perfect world.
