Unhappy Noob usb modem connection problem


Hi. Having never used linx before I am having a few problems!

I've just taken delvery of an Acer Aspire one netbook and cannot for the life of me work out how to connect to my Thomson onetouch USB modem. The USB ports on the netbook are working fine (I've checked with a pen drive). When I connect the modem nothing happens!

Sorry to ask such a basic question but I'm struggling...!

Basically it should be like
1.install driver (or this may be automatic) and
2. configure dsl connection with network manager
