The README that comes with it is a little intimidating

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:

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.
Basically you can install USBNetwork without any problems via a Win7 PC. Having got it on there you need some knowledge to use it. The warnings are only there to stop you tinkering if you do not know what you are doing as it is possible to brick the Kindle.
