> Michael, the easiest way to install it under 8.04 is to install the latest Network Manager (under backports I think), I used a 3 one last year on my EEE and tried the Vodaphone s/w and then found the new Network Manger had 3G support, all you need to do then is plug it in and under the NM select Mobile Broadband and connect. 
Hi Ken,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I am new to Ubuntu, so dont 
know what Backports is. I'm using 8.10 so would that make a difference. 
I dont get the 3g support on this network manager. :( Could you explain 
a bit more, if it is possible? Thank you.
