I found this great list on the ubuntu website when I was troubleshooting some issues I had with my microphone. I found the fix on #9, but the rest are great to keep handy.

Like many, I have a Windows server 2003. As we know, there's no Windows Remote Desktop software native to linux, so we have to make due with VNC. Can't connect? Here's what you're doing wrong.

I had an ISO I downloaded from the net. I needed to toss it onto a usbdrive but it wasn't a linux distro. Most programs won't or can't make a bootable usb from a non-linux ISO in Ubuntu. Or so I thought.

This solution works, isn't choppy on my computer. It is, however a bit clunky. You need to grab your Windows XP disk (or find a lightweight version off of bittorrent or something, the lighter the better) and that's all you will need.
I feel like I went through hell and back for such a simple solution. I installed Wicd to make my wireless work. It's not as elegant as the native wireless controller, but I can connect to wireless networks and stay connected. It displays signal strength, channel, SSID - everything you would ever need.
