I ditched Windows, finally got my SpeedTouch modem working with Mandrake 10.
I booted using kernel 2.4 and after running speedtouchconf.sh (http://speedtouchconf.sf.net/)

Congrats! What kind of SpeedTouch is that? The USB modem? I've been messing to get that online with SUSE 8.1 and never got it to work. Nowadays I'm using a router and don't care anymore... ^_^

I was using a dodgy SpeedTouch 330 adsl modem.

Now I'm trying to write a shell script to connect/disconnect the ADSL PPP connection.

I've been wanting to switch over to linux (FC) for a while, but yet to really have the time when at home to do so. I know at my work we are gradually switching over to using linux more and more. So hopefully I can finally get some use out of the linux classes I took back in the day.

Nicely done. I'm using Fedora Core 3 (it will be 4 when yum gets done with it), with my own compiled from source kernel and KDE installation. I've got an ADSL modem, so the default installation of Linux connected me to the internet. Too bad your service provider is a pain with Linux, but at least you've got it working now.
