That's not part of the Ubuntu installation process...make sure you got a quality ISO. To make sure, you can get a torrent from Ubuntu's main site and verify it with the MD5 checksum.
Ubuntu does not install automatically from the start, it is a Linux-LiveCD which means it should boot into a slimline version of Ubuntu without installing anything, then you can double-click the "HD-Install" to being the installation process. The icon will bring up a wizard, answer the 5 (or 6 questions, can't remember) and happy using .

Memories are nice, but that\'s all they are....memories.
You can\'t ever find a place that\'s nice and peaceful, because there isn\'t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you\'re not looking, somebody\'ll sneak up and write \'Fuck you\' right under your nose.

exe is windows executable.
Google to find driver for linux. But most of the time, i think it is automatically install. Try ifconfig
