FC3 USB Speedtouch modem for ADSL. Need help!

Hello all,

I've done a serious researching in how-to's available on the web so I could configure my adsl connection using a Thomson SpeedTouch 330 modem. Fact is, I'm getting real frustrated, since all the solutions I tried went wrong.

So, I ask, do anyone of you know how I can configure my connection right?

A bit of info:

Got the drivers installed - speedtouch-1.3.1;
Got the firmware - speedtouchmgmt;
Using a PPPoE connection, so the common solution (PPPoA) won't do;
Using Fedora Core 3 (which, BTW, doesn't have the file "modules.conf", a file that many how-to's made reference to);
I'm a real noob on Linux, so please, bear on me

Usually, what happens is that "Link is down" as one error message reported, so I assume that the modem isn't being detected right or something... It's status is always inactive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx in advance!
