Alright, today I installed Ubuntu after spending my whole life using Windows products, and now I'm absolutely knee deep in a pile of junk I need help with #1 I downloaded Java, but I dunno how to install it. this message (gedit has not been able to detect the character coding. Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file. Select a character coding from the menu and try ) #2 I got no sound, I tried installing a driver, no Linux ones though. #3 I put my Windows harddrive in an external case, is there a way to boot from it without putting it back inside my comp? #4 I got a very annoying screen resolution, it's to small, and the next one is too big. In windows I had a lot more choices. Should be a lot more problems coming.
