One final issue, and then everything is running perfectly...

I can't seem to find the install driver for my Ethernet Controller (It's not working properly).

It's a Broadcom Gigabit V - 5787.

Help would be appreciated.

Is there an easier way for me to burn the install file to a disc?

I'm not familiar will burning an ISO file or whatever this requires. Or maybe somebody could further explain this for me? Thanks.
