Here is a Dutch page from my ISP on how to configure a Thomson for
Linux.  For those that do not understand Dutch the commands mentioned
should still be the same and the pictures could be helpful.


Or for other modems:


I used to have one of those Thomsons.  I think I just ran a command
like 'dhclient eth0' or maybe 'ifup eth0' and everything worked.  I
used kernel 2.4 under woody then; maybe the 2.4.18-bf version.
