Question Installing USBNetwork on Kindle 3 via Windows 7

Hello everyone, this is my first post on these forums.

I just received my Kindle 3 in the mail, and immediately ran into a brick wall. I got the WiFi only version, and my university network uses Enterprise. Aaah, nvm... I came across a patch for this on these forums. So, I jailbroke it. However, I would really appreciate any pointers you could give me with regards to the USBNetwork installation process.

The README that comes with it is a little intimidating
I *strongly* recommend having a proper Linux CLI sysadmin background before trying to use this,
or you *WILL* probably end up messing your Kindle up. Do *NOT* do anything with this unless
your are *REALLY* sure you understand what you're doing.

First off, can I install USBNetwork on my Kindle from Windows 7, or will I need to install a Linux OS on another partition? If that's the case, would Ubuntu work?

This is the site I've found that explains how to make the Kindle connect to an enterprise network: (I've removed the link)

Please do not be put off by my questions. Yes, I am an undergraduate freshman but I'm eager to learn. And I couldn't find any helpful info on what USBNetwork is via Google.
