Thanks for your response,  Jason.

(The posting you replied to was meant to be sent to Stephan but it ended 
up being sent to the list.)

I agree that the E220 sucks.  I am in fact using a E620 as you suggest 
for my current internet connection - but on my old laptop as a gateway.  
My new laptop has a ?PCCard slot which does not take the E620.  I hoped 
that Vodacom would support this new card format but it looks like 
they've opted for the USB E220 and since it works for Windows, they will 
stop there.

I think now (rereading the forum postings) that that is the package that 
is broken by kernel 2.6.20. for the E220 . It is not the kernel drivers 
themselves that are broken as I previously thought.  But I may have it 
totally wrong again!

Received your config.  Thanks.  That was the config from TAzzTux I was 
going to try so it's good to know it works for you!
