Default two important issues

#1

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
Password:
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".

#3

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?

Specs:
Sony Vaio FE770G Laptop
Core 2 Duo 1.83GHz
2GB Memory
Creative Soundblaster Live! 24-bit External USB
Intel 945GM / 950 Chipset (graphics)
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection
