Good question. The "easy" answer used to be ndiswrapper. Most Linux distributions seem to work fine with most ethernet adapters, but if not then with ndiswrapper you can install the Windows XP driver (the .inf file) and it will often work. Kubuntu probably has or had a GUI front end for ndiswrapper.

There used to be lots and lots of information available. Now about all I can find is the link provided above and a news release that Linux has "denounced" ndiswrapper as something not really eligible for a GPL.

Does it not ask about connection during set-up?

Can you run it as a LiveCD and connect to internet?
