two important issues
I'm trying to move files to my usb flash drive but it keeps telling me no permission.
How do I create a folder on my usb drive via command line AND drag/drop via places > usb?
chad@Secured:~$ sudo mkdir /media/Backup
chad@Secured:~$ sudo chmod a+w /media/Backup
chad@Secured:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/Backup
mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /media/Backup busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb1 is mounted on /media/Backups
How do I upgrade my hardware drivers in Ubuntu 7, and yet how do I know IF I need to upgrade? I'm specifically referring to network, graphics. Sound is not working (5.1) via my SB Live 24 bit external, as dozens others are having this issue here
For one thing, my display is not as bright in linux as it is in Vista. Not sure why.
My networking always shows up as "restricted driver".
Also, any way to do a complete Ubuntu system snapshot even if it is only a small partition created in Vista? For example, in Vista you can do the whole computer snapshot which I've done, took 2 DVD's. I'd like to do the same only on the Ubuntu partition. If possible, would I be able to restore that snapshot and entirely wiping out any current partitions on my laptop?

Core 2 Duo 1.83GHz
Creative Soundblaster Live! 24-bit External USB
Intel 945GM / 950 Chipset (graphics)
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection

Intellipoint Wireless Laser 6000 Mouse
Something like Ghost4Linux, dd, or SystemImager should work for you.
Trying to install systemimager from this link (auto script) but it won't work
Thanks for the help.
Can someone please help me upgrade my drivers, or at least find out HOW I should know when new drivers are available?
I also want to know why my linux is not as bright/saturated (gamma?) as Vista. I want to make sure my setup is on 32bit, not 24bit. How can I figure this out?

apt-get -u upgrade
or with the update application that shows when updates are available in the task bar.
If your drivers are third party drivers that you download from other websites then ubuntu, you will have to check these websites for updates manually.
But if your drivers work fine, you normally do not need to update them.
Ok, but here's the thing that concerns me. My intel wireless driver shows up as "restricted driver". What does that mean and how do I correct that?
Restricted driver maens, that the driver is not released as open source by intel. It does not mean that is resticted in functionality like a trial version or that it is not the optimal driver for your hardware.
