Ok, so I bought *another* computer. I was successful in installing Ubuntu in dual boot with XP Pro SP3 on my Dell XPS M1330 a few months ago and it's working fine. Well, I just received my Dell MiNi 9 and it's awesome! Came loaded with Ubuntu for free! (Instead of $199 for xp.) I recently purchased a Nokia E71 phone as well to replace my BB. I wish to set up the E71 as a BT and USB modem. I am a linux noob. I found this. http://i-nz.net/2008/09/18/nokia-e71-as-a-usb-or-bluetooth-3g-data-modem-on-linux/ It looks straight forward but I appear to be too stupid to edit files in linux. Can someone dumb the process down for me? Or walk me through it on AIM/MSN/Y!/Gtalk?
