SBC/Yahoo. It was just SBC a while ago, but it seems that they've
merged with Yahoo since I first got hooked up with DSL.

No such luck. If anyone else has had better luck than I have in
getting a Linux driver for SBC/Yahoo, let me know... Not only
for my USB 4060, but for any other as well...

I've thought of that. The newest SBC modems are ethernet-based,
but I still think they need some kind of driver that is run by some
software that runs on the Windows box. I'm not sure if SBC supports
Linux at all...

No. I own it.

I dunno. I hadn't even thought about that option... :)

I think my best bet is to just get things working with the current
modem, through Windows. Later on I might buy a new DSL modem that
is ethernet-based instead of USB based.
