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.

Hey, I use tiscali to, and have that modem (If I remember correctly). I had it working under Mandrake 10.1, and it was very easy to set up. All I did was plug it in, go to the mandrake control panel, go to the internet/network panel and create a new internet connection. (My memory is a little hazy as to what I did here...) I believe you have to use PPP (PPPoA I think, maybe PPPoE) and keep going through the menu's choosing a user name and password. It auto-detected the modem for me and that was pretty much it. It connected at boot and worked fine. However, I stopped using that modem when I got an ADSL router (these should work out of the box as they are network interfaces). If you can't get it to work through the control panel, try searching for eagle-usb (saved you the hasle: http://sourceforge.net/projects/eagle-usb/), but it is so much easier to do in mandrake's control panel. Hope this helps...
thanks man, but that doesnt help me much as it just keeps saying "computer not connected to internet, try reconfiguring settings" i got all the eagle usb stuff blah blah, tryed the method you did, but hasnt worked yt. anyone else got a method?
The problem lies in the eagleconfig as far as I'm aware(???). When you run it and select UK01 your VCI is set to something like 56 and VPI to 0.
If you look at the manual configuration for Tiscali on the CD that came with it, it states that your settings should be 38 for VCI and 0 for VPI and PPPoA. When I first eagleconfigged I got the same message. I manually edited the /etc/eagle-usb/eagle-usb.conf file to correct this (only the VCI is wrong) and everything worked fine.
Only thing I've not got working now is to be able to connect as anything but root, but then I've not really tried yet, it was a quick and dirty setup.
#POTS FOR EAGLE
#Enable OPTN16 for WT-062 testing only
VCI=00000038 # This was 56
#Note that the following value for encapsulation is in hex and define
#values in Konst.h are decimal. For example value for PPPOA_VC in
#header file is 6 decimal which is 6 in Hex, therefore if we want to use
#PPPOA_VC then we should put 6 in the following line for Encapsulation
#The following values are valid for encapsulation :
#MPOA_MODE_BRIDGED_ETH_LLC ----> 1
#MPOA_MODE_BRIDGED_ETH_VC ----> 2
#MPOA_MODE_ROUTED_IP_LLC ----> 3
#MPOA_MODE_ROUTED_IP_VC ----> 4
#MPOA_MODE_PPPOA_LLC ----> 5
#MPOA_MODE_PPPOA_VC ----> 6
#You must set Linetype to 10 To be able to get CMV values from CMV text files
#If you set Linetype to anything other than 10 then driver gets CMVs from
#this file. And also if there is no CMV text file for any reason then
#driver gets CMVs from this file as well
If you want to also set up your /etc/resolve.conf manually this is my file
