Ooh bum - you've selected my suggestion! - no pressure!

Anyway - which modem did you get ?

The modems that I have direct experience of do not have ethernet - they've 
been models of the SpeedTouch USB modem (the 320 and the 330)

If it is a SpeedTouch there is a user space driver (apt-get install 
speedtouch). Therre are hundreds of places around the web that explain how to 
do speedtouch and debian.

Basically the modem behaves in a very similar fashion to a normal dial-up 
modem: i.e. you have to set up ppp.

I have a small firewall with a SpeedTouch 330 connected so I can get the 
relevant details from that, although it was set up using Potato with a 320 

Unfortunately, I can't track down anything right now as I'm cooking tea for 
the wife and me. Will definitely get back to you later this evening if you 
haven't succeeded on your own.

Good luck,
