Hi peter99co, I have an asus EeePC runing the original linux and use mobile broadband, The EeePC has a driver for the Hauwei e220 dongle and it is very easy to set up. But you may have to first set the dongle up on an XP/Vista PC so that you can get the log in information.
If you have an EeePC than the Forums have a lot of information about mobile broad band dongles.
