    It's a bit tricky (not that bad, just a bit of extra work) to get Speedtouch USB modems working in linux. Do you have a hard drive install of Knoppix or are you using the live cd? If you're just "test driving" with the live cd, it may be a bit more trouble than it's worth for you.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I have exactly the same problem.
    I am new to this and have just installed Mandrake 9.1. I have a speedtouch 330 adsl modem that connects to my pc via a usb slot. When i try to use the internet setup wizzard it keeps looking for the modem at the ethernet connection.

    Will someone please explain to me in a step by step way how to configure my modem.

    Thanks,
