Thanks I finally got that all working great.

I would also like to set up my palm treo 755p with my thinkpad as a usb
modem.  The account is set up with my provider, but my laptop does not
see the modem.  I would also still like to be able to switch between my
ethernet interface, and wifi card (and select networks) in the easiest
way possible.  

Does anybody have experience with all this?  There seems to be many
packages that deal with networking.  ie. networkmanager, wifimanager,
wifiradar, kwifimanager...   Does anybody have any clear easy advice as
to what packages to use, packages to NOT use, how to set configurations?

Thanks again!
Rick
