I have a really old laptop which I have recently installed Lucid 10.04.4 Server on because it would not support newer versions. Instead of an ethernet cable it has an internal modem with a phone line connection on the outside. It was designed for Windows 98! I cannot work out how to fix my wifi adaptor in terminal. I really want to have a desktop enviroment or at least a window manager with which to manually launch my apps on. How can I carry over files from my internet connected ubuntu 13.10 laptop to this old one and get them working? Thanks for ur help!

Download, burn and install Lubuntu from an alternate install disk. You will find all the information needed here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Alternate_ISO

I have found that you can simply carry over the .deb files on a usb and use dpkg -i to install them. This worked perfectly for me!
