Hi, all --I have an eeePC, and I want to access the Internet using an external modem.  I can go to "network" and configure the modem, but I can't dial the ISP.  Can anybody tell me where the button is to "dial"?   Alternatively, if dialing is automatic (doesn't seem likely), wheredoes the external modem attach?  Do I need to do a mount to /dev/modem?And if so, what am I mounting? Thanks.cheers,,pete
