Setting up Linux totally linSux

So I finally have linux set up on this machine, I got tired of reading about Ubuntu and not knowing wtf was up. However since I won't be gaming in linux, it becomes crucial that it can do everything else I want it to, such as viewing webpages properly... which it didn't. So I spent half the night just trying to get my flash to work properly so I could watch youtube and be merry.

Then I wanted Beryl, for it was the one true reason I went through all this to begin with. It wasn't fun. However, eventually I was able to get most of it working, and you can check out the pretty screenshot here...



Anyway, that was last night for the most part; today I went through a tweaks page to get my firefox faster but I really need recompile my kernel for my specific needs, which presents two problems...
A) I don't know how to do that...
B) I don't know what my needs are...
Other than that I'm gold. That's my adventure in linux thus far.

I also stumbled upon a screenshot that someone else took of their beryl, chicken soup for the nerd soul I guess...
