    Hello all,

    I am a new linux user.I was using previously Fedora 7 and browsed the internet by using my SonyEricsson k550i as a EDGE modem.I setup the modem by editing the "wvdial.conf" file under "/etc/" directory.

    I have recently installed Mandriva linux 2008.0,But i could not setup my phone as a modem.Thus,i cannot use internet from Mandriva.

    Please help me solve this..

    Did you install wvdial?
    Try this:
    urpmi wvdial
