An admirable goal, indeed.

Yes!  And you'll probably find it works slightly better than under Windows.

Make sure you're using the latest 2.4 kernel, and the rest is
straightforward.  www.linux-usb.org is your friend.

> Can anyone please help me to get my USB modem working. It's an Acer 56 USB.
You are new, aren't you? :-)  There was a thread on USB modems just a few
days ago.
However, The Acer may be a little more difficult.  The best I've been able
to get from google, is that this time last year, it was correctly
identified, but although the chipset manufacturor claims linux support, it
does not actually function yet.

Things just happen.  What the hell.
