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

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

Hey,

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.
