Re: Using Adobe Flash and other 32-bit applications on 64-bit Linux

"I had to disable the network card in the bios just to get the live CD to work."

The kernel version on the live CD has issues with the BIOS of many of the new Toshiba laptops.

Install the OS, then grab the latest linux-image package from the ubuntu repositories and put it on a thumb drive. Install it, re-enable your network card, and run update-manager. The latest kernels do not have the issue.
