Ok . . . We did it! I'm mobile with Vodafone on 8.10 -  Champion
stuff!  :-)
Anyway, no luck with 9.04, but when I went back to 8.10, and just
minutes before heading off to Three Shop, thought I'd have one more
crack at it.
So, in summary, I installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my work lappy (the main one I
need mobile) and then done the following:
Opened a terminal window
sudo dpkg -i usb-modeswitch_1.0.2-1_i386.deb
and then
sudo apt-get -f install
Opened Network Manager and filled in the appropriated blanks and BINGO!
Thanks for the help and  perseverance on this.
