Got netbook. Installed Ubuntu 12.04 because want to be conservative re LT. Radeon X1270

I want to be able to sign in blind, install what I need to using some keystrokes and presumably to do the apt-get install changes recommended in another article.

I have tried several versions of Linux and I am certain that they all give the same problem with this hardware. So what I need to do is connect and control so I can do the upgrade from a nearby networked computer.

I have often found myself in this situation so … it may be useful to know for posterity.
