I use FreeBSD so Ubuntu may be a little different. Connect it to the machine and boot it. Login and run dmesg | more
The adapter will be listed if Ubuntu sees it.
Then use whatever the Ubuntu command is to get a DHCP address or the ifconfig -u command to give it a static IP.

In my case it would be
dhclient axe0
for a DHCP address.

I don't think you can use the Live CD for that. Install it on a PC if you have one and then go through the procedure that I described.
