I have just installed a copy of Mandriva 2010 and my wireless driver was apparently not installed. I checked HP site on this computer to find drivers for Linux, yet sadly they have none. I am still getting familiar with all the internet language.....well let's just say I know jack shit.

As close to a simple answer as I can get would be great, assuming there is one.

How can I get my now Linux laptop hooked up wirelessly? Also if there is a tutorial along the lines of....Linux for the retarded...please point me there and I will figure it out myself.

Thanks in advance, Shadow
