I was interested in putting Ubuntu on my eMachines el1200 and I was just wondering if it was compatible with my new Netgear USB Wireless Network Adapter. It is a WG111.

Hi,
Why not run the 'live' Ubuntu disc to test out your hardware? Download the .iso, burn to disc (not copy) and boot from the CD. You get a choice when it's loading to "try" or "install". Click "try" and this stage, it'll run slower than an installed version but you can check that your hardware works.

I've used that USB stick way back with Ubuntu 7.10.
At the time, I needed ndiswrapper to get it recognised, but drivers may have been included in the latest kernel.
Either way, it works fine.
