No that didn't do it.
I have to type
into a terminal everytime i boot up, but obviously i can't do this as non-root user.
I have something called wvdial, but when i try to configure it, it starts a port scan, looking for the modem, and just stops dead at USB15 doing nothing. so if anyone could help me with wvdial or point me in the direction of another piece of software which does the same thing it would be greatly appreciated.
Is there a way i could create a script that would allow me, as non-root, to login to the termianl as root, then run /etc/init.d/speedtouch start
