I've recently just bought a Dell mini Inspiron from Dell.co.uk which is running on ubunto. I inserted Vodafone broadband into the notebook but it wont install the vodafone software. The dell technical helpdesk said ubunto wont support vodafone mobile broadband in Ireland. This is staggering!

Can anyone confirm this or help me. Do i need to now get windows on my new machine to run vodafone mobile broadband?
