Hallo,

I am a beginner at linux but have managed to install a modem driver and get dial-up internet working on Ubuntu 8.10, but have a few questions.

1. I am using the free linuxant drivers. Are there any free drivers available which will allow full speed dial-up? (Why these don't come on the Ubunto CD is another question...)

2. I currently have to do sudo pon and sudo poff to switch the drivers on/off. Is there any way to automate this when starting Firefox?

3. The help refers to Administration> Network or Networking, but I only have Network Tools, which doesn't have any modem properties.
