shipit.ubuntu.com finally sent me the (free!!!) ubuntu cd's.... popped it into my amd64, and the livecd was running super smooth.ok, here's the important part: my amd64 machine is connected to airtel's 220bx by usb. forgetting that fact, i absentmindedly ran firefox.... and even though the connection was usb, everything worked great! ok, haven't tested torrents yet, but just the fact that firefox ran so... so transparently, was great.so maybe ubuntu+220bx usb is possible.
