comment Set up a Serial-to-Ethernet Converter With a Virtual Serial Port
That was a typo. Fixed now. I came to the conclusion that this device requires a kernel driver (that doesn't exist), so I ended up getting another device - a Moxa Nport 5250A Serial Device Server, which has drivers for 2.4-2.6 kernels. It seems to be working well. I'm sure the original 3one data device would have worked if they actually wrote a driver for it.

comment Anyone get sound working on a HP 8540p?
Have you tried running alsamixer from a terminal session and seeing if any of the sliders there are muted? (MM instead of a number at the bottom of a control)

@grinan James makes a good point, are you sure your network is using WEP? If not, try the wpa commands he listed.

No worries, consider adding what you did as an answer in case other people come across the same problem as you.

comment ImportError: No module named gtk
When you say "It has something to do with module named axi.", what specifically does it tell you? Does running sudo synaptic from the command line throw errors or warnings mentioning axi? Feel free to edit your original question with the detail.

comment Bootable dual os flashdrive?
Having tried to do this once with Windows, my strongest recommendation is: don't. Buy an external DVD drive for ~30 dollars and save yourself the headaches. It's very easy to do with Ubuntu, however.

comment Converting panasonic .MTS video into high quality mpeg videos?
I'd try using the script in the site I linked to - the other thing is to make sure you have all of the codecs - perhaps you don't have libx264 installed?

comment Excel Cell Comments Are White When Opened in Calc?
Have you tried saving it as an Excel 97/2000/XP compatible file? I find that they generally work much better with LibreOffice.
