Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Running that exe will do you no good (unless your acer has xp on it) what we need to determine is what kernel version you are running. If you don't know how to find that information from the desktop do the following:
Click My Documents, under the Files Tab Select File--> Terminal. Now type: uname -r and post the result to this thread.
The kernel version you are running should already support that modem. We need to check for the presence of two files, make sure the modem is plugged into the usb before continuing. In terminal type: ls -ls /dev the listing may be quite long. Use the scroll bar to the right and look for these two files: ttyUSB0 & ttyUSB1. Then type: lsusb an post that output here to this thread.
