Thread should be moved to the Linux Users Corner...

is there a way i can move it to there I did not realize there was a separate discussion for linux ...

Only the mods can, unfortunately. In the mean time, check out the Linux Users forum - lots of people doing Linux connectivity.

RE: 9530 Storm - Verizon Wireless - Tethered Connection - Ubuntu

I wrote a tutorial for this a while back here. It was for a debian derivative called Elive. But it should function the same for ubuntu with minor updates or changes.

I have moved over to Fedora 11 now and might re-write the turotial for this distro soon.

Let me know if you run into any problems. 8-)

I think I have almost got it to work .....thanks so much for the Post -- the only downside is that it looks like I will needing to be connected via bluetooth, much slower connection ..oh well much better than nothing!
