Question ECS Desknote A901 (Intel Celeron 1.1 GHz)

Has anyone purchased the ECS Desknote A901 and is able to get the built-in modem work under Linux ?

Please help give me the detail of which Linux distro which you used. Any trick of trade to configure the Linux/ Modem drivers to get this work.

I've done plenty search on the cyber but only got advice to try this and that but those users did not really ever use this Desknote product and, unfortunately, their advices were not really helpful...

Kind thanks,
Wayne peterson

There is a Yahoo! Group on the go for Desknote users, and most of us are also Linux users. It can be found at
