    ... but, confused and really don't have time to read tld's Modem-HOWTO to figure that out. (Though I will get around to reading something that trough looking. Looks like good info.)

    Second on modems. I have a cricket A605 ZTE usb broadband modem that I have never gotten to work on SUSE. Yes it flips and almost had me flipping out, anywho. Any special steps to get it to work, that I should know before hand?

    Partitioning. Simple question. I already have two existing ext3s' (one for root, other for home), do I need to still go through the steps or can I skip to selecting what is what?

    As far as i can see the 1st one is your wireless card, the second is ethernet... so none of them are your modem. I've never used USB modem, but i guess it should say something like "Network Controller: USB Modem..."
    What happens if you plug in the usb?
    Check ifconfig
    Check /var/log/ and see if it detects the usb.
    and of course if that doesn't help - rtfm
