Unhappy Loaded MINT 7 Gloria alongside Vista - wireless Broadband Q

Running Mint 7 alongside Windows Vista since yesterday. There is no option on the Welcome Window at startup for my Dodo Provider, There is Telstra, Optus etc - but no 'Dodo'

Is it Possible to change the Icons?

How do you get Mint 7 Gloria to see the Vista HD,s C, & D,

Thanks in advance for any help given to this green green Newvie

Not with you on Dodo. Whassat?

As for mounting disks, you stick a line in /etc/fstab

/dev/sda1 /mount/point NTFS mount options

see man fstab

on this thread:-

is the thought to use if it is a sierra wireless modem,
even though you are using Dodo instead of BP

May I ask why you went for Dodo ?, Optus is usually better ....

note that these cheaper ones generally only support M$.

if you want to run your wireless on linux, the bigger provider are better.

it also depends on the coverage that you want from them.


If you click on the computer icon, you will see in the tree list on the lhs, the drive label(s) for the C & D drives under Vista.
double click to mount & view in a new window.
