Dear NoOp --
I have valued your input on a number of issues in which you have supplied the definitive answers to a question.  However, to the best of my knowledge, I am asking a question for the first time and in no way hijacked somebody else's thread.  I DO  have an eeePC, and I very much want to use Ubuntu as its operating system.  (I use Ubuntu for several other systems, and I really like it).  I DO have an external modem, I have configured it in "network", and I would like to make it work.  I would very much like to find out how to dial the ISP using it.  I look forward to responses, and I would especially value yours.

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 

Don't know. But your question has nothing to do with the subject of this
thread "How do I dial using external modem". Perhaps if you don't
someone else's thread and start a new one, someone will reply.
