Hi Mark,
I see you're using 9.04 which seems to work with no problems, maybe I 
should go that route, instead of struggling with 8.04.

I have downloaded, in an attempt to get 8.04 working, the 2 vodafone deb 
packages from the site kindly given to me by Garron & installed them but 
now the betavine installer sticks on the initial setup section & won't 
complete the setup process.

This is not the install process, which I did after downloading & was 
A drop down device selection box.asks for settings which I haven't a 
clue as to what they are.
The window has a grayed out area for Known Devices & shows "No Known 
Device Found"
Beneath this is the Custom Device Settings section & the only option 
available in this under Device Type is Serial & I can't change this as 
there are no other options.
Data Port Device is Blank as well as the Control Port Device, I don't 
know what should should be put in these.
Connection is set at115200, this is from setting up the dial up modem..

It would appear that betavine is waiting for information to be put in 
this box before it can complete the initial setup?

Hopefully you have ideas on getting things to work.
