Works for me. Open the Mandrake control centre and go to network/internet options/setup the internet screen (I haven't got Mandrake 9.1 installed anymore so I'm typing this from my fuzzy memory). Choose the wizard to setup the connection. On one screen there are two boxes checked, I think one of them is for ethernet and the other is something like ADSL? Make sure you un-set the ethernet one. On another screen the option set is pppd but another option further down is for speedtouch. Make sure you choose speedtouch. Fill out all the details properly. I don't think the name of your ISP is crucial, but you must get your account details, Password and country right. Set it to dial on boot. It was working fine on this very computer a couple of days ago.
