Modem detection


hi,
i buy sony vaio vgn-sz640 recently and install openSuSE on it, but linux not detect my modem and now i can't go online.what should i do?
sorry for my not well english and thanks!


A while ago I converted my friend to GNU/linux and he agreed to install it on his laptop.


When I have a usb mouse connected to my laptop, everything works fine, including the touchpad. When my usb mouse is not connected, X will crash.


Well, the situation is strange... I tried moving to KDE from GNOME and I even liked it but there is a weird thing. KDE crashes my laptop. Completely. After a few hours of using it it just hangs up upon some action, like a desktop switch or right-click on some icon in Konqueror -- in all cases it's some KDE-related thing. The computer crashes completely then. I can't kill X, reboot or even ping my laptop from the outside. Only power off helps. In GNOME, it has never happened, neither in FVWM-Crystal. I suspected arts daemon so I uninstalled it, but it didn't help.
