I looked in the Synaptic dialog under Networking but no eagle-usb-data there
or under any other selection either.
Trouble for me is, I can't ask it to download anything cause I don't have a
connection on the Ubuntu side.
 That also makes it difficult or at least very slow and frought witrh error
when everyone here kindly suggests code that will do the trick, I have to
print it out in XP and then log into Ubuntu to key it in.
So far I still have not connection so I am not doing something right, but

Hi Ian, welcome to Ubuntu.
Ubuntu supports the Sagem 800 modem.
Select System > Administration > Synaptic
Select Networking
Go down to eagle-usb-data and eagle-usb-utils and install these.
Follow the instructions and you should be OK.
Best wishes, Ron
